It depends on the exam board. We've had most of the priority requests we sent off on Thursday back from Edexcel and OCR already but I wouldn't expect to see anything from AQA for a few days yet.

What subjects were the OCR remarks for? I sent all 3 of my bio papers off for a priority remark on Thursday and haven’t heard anything back yet.

Oddly, I've had all subjects we do with OCR except Biology back.

It's been a really bad year so far for success - about 12 or 13 have come back and only 2 have had mark changes with only 1 grade change

Have these been STEM or humanities/essay subjects mainly?

A reasonable mixture - Maths, Economics, Psychology, History, Geography, Psychology, Physics...

It depends on your school. I email the student's school email and the email address of the person who paid f that's not the same.

do you happen to remember what subject the grade change was in and how many marks the candidate was away from the grade.

Yes, but what relevance does this have to you? Most papers will be marked correctly but there will be marking errors in pretty much all subjects.

just because I'm getting my maths paper remarked but I've been told it's unlikely to change because it's not subjective. So was just wondering what subject the grade change was in

You get changes in all subjects. The bigger ones tend to be in the more subjective subjects but they can happen anywhere if there's been a transcription error at some point. I've had a Maths paper change by 2 this year (it went down) whereas none of the History have moved at all. However, the sample size is so small as to make the data worthless.
