Got my results and I am one mark off a B in Sociology. **** knows how. I didn't even expect to pass it. So I have sent it off for a re-mark but how likely is it that they will give me one extra mark?

I know re-markings changed to be more strict but I got a re-mark for my English GCSE under the new rules and went up by 4 marks. I know Sociology is subjective but what is everyone else's experience?

I think you have a good chance of it being pushed up to a B with a subject like Sociology.

P.S. Well done :woo:

Ooh, another quick question? How long does remarking take? My teacher didn't say and just made me sign a sheet.

It varies a lot between boards - we've had some back already from Edexcel, OCR are also quick but AQA are likely to take at least 1 week if it's non priority and may be up to 30 days.

Student needed one more mark to get in to the university of his choice, so gave us permission to download 2 papers this morning. Teacher marked them and told him which one was worth a review. We applied and his better grade was back by 5pm so he will have his place.

The admin staff at my school told me. You can request it from them, just call/email.

My results sheet wasn't very clear what I got in each individual module either.
