    On results day I found out that I was one mark off an A in History, and a couple marks off a C in Biology and Physics so both my teachers said that they'd send my papers off for a re-mark and I signed it off with my signature. However 2 months on I still haven't heard anything, no letters through the post, no email off the school and I'm beginning to wonder if my papers were actually re-sent? My history exam board was iGCSE so I'm not sure if that one would take longer to mark because its international but surely by now the re-marks would've been done? What should I do? All comments are greatly appreciated!!

    Sounds odd. The longest wait I've heard of is 20 working days, and we're well past that now.

    Ask the school.

    I emailed by Media teacher about a month ago now and the head of exams had a look and said that there was nothing on there yet! Plus my history teacher would let me know if there was anything I should know about it, but she hasn't mentioned it when she last emailed. I just feel bad bothering teachers and asking them so often!

    Don't feel bad - and try visiting them in person, they might be trying to fob you off, to be honest.

    It seems highly unusual to be waiting so long for remark results.

    Thanks so much for your comment, I'll definitely drop by to the school soon and ask why it's taking so long! It's annoying me now because they just haven't told me anything, and others have already got their re-marks for Maths and English, but I'm just still waiting :/
