Hi,

I'm debating whether to get my Computer Science grade (currently a B) remarked or not.

My UMS was 235 and i need 240 for an A and I've been told by my teacher that 5 UMS equates to 4 marks (for my paper).

I done OCR Computer Science and the unit I'm missing out on is A451.

Should i request a remark?

4 raw marks is quite a lot for Computer Science - I wouldn't have thought it was worth it.

Like Compost said, 4 marks is a lot. Bearing in mind CS is not a subjective subject so unless OCR royally ****ed up, you'll be wasting the remark fee.

Also, it's only GCSE so don't be too bothered about it (unless you are going for Oxford).

Yea I was thinking that it's unlikely to get those 4 marks. I've got into a very good grammar sixth form but I just wanted it to boost my ego I guess. Also partly because I was so close to the next grade in 3 other subject, but I'll leave it as there's no point.

Thanks to you both!
