    The deadline was a few days ago. You missed it. You can't get a remark.

    I am sure you can ask the exam board directly, it is never too late to ask but depends on how lenient they are and if they dont accept well you have my dearest apologies.

    Well, you could build a time machine from your toaster. But failing that, no. They gave a fairly generous deadline as results day was about a month ago.

    Challenge grades are meant to be a "CHALLENGE" and its not neccessary for you to receive it, so dont worry as long as you tried your best its fine. You passes now focus on A levels, they are much more important and GCSEs pretty much mean nothing- not as much as A Levels anyway.

    Yes! But i want to get into something science based but with a 5 in Maths i don't think i can? however i'm taking Biology and Chemistry and English Lit. I even took Core Maths which is equivalent to an AS. So would it matter if i got a 5 in maths but a higher grade in Core Maths?

    how many marks were u away from a 6 , i'm in the same situation as you , but i'm retaking maths at 6th-form (cause i ****ed up on one of the math papers). Just a word of warning i was 2/3 marks away from a 6 and they said it wasn't worth it cause it was most likely going to stay the same , remarks that are successful can be rare in math papers ( unless the examiner really ****ed up ) honestly just retake maths and do the exam in November or something

    Trust me its fine: http://www.manchester.ac.uk/study/un...-requirements/

    Look at the GCSE requirements for biomedical science, they are only asking for a 4 and you have a 5, that's already higher than the minimum so it's fine. and Manchester is a top uni and 13th place for biomedical science, so trust me you'll be more than fine just focus on a levels and meet those requirements.
