Has anyone had a successful re-grade from a remark?

I'm having one of my maths (Edexcel) papers remarked and I don't know what to do to keep my misery away while waiting for the results. I'm 3 marks off an A* and my firm has already rejected me.

I know that marks can go down or stay the same especially with maths but I'm hoping against hope that they have missed a page or miscalculated...

My son got one of his maths papers remarked a couple of years ago and he did go up 3-4 marks so it happens....but no guarantee that it will happen to you as I'm sure you know. Let us know how you get on

One mark!? That hurts even more. Is your firm aware that you are having a remark? Really hoping that our grades move up...

Just got my Econ Edexcel remark back. No change - was 8 marks off and knew it was pretty unlikely but I was a bit desperate haha.

still waiting to hear back for English lit which is the one that I genuinely believe I got the wrong marks for. Fingers crossed because it's meant to be such a subjective subject.

Good luck for yours and keep us updated!

What grade are you hoping it changes to, and how many marks away from that grade are you?

A* by 7 marks.

I know it sounds like a lot and it probably is but basically I got full marks for half the English lit modules and just over half marks for the other half which is just incredibly inconsistent. Thought the exams went well as well but I guess I'll find out...

History and Physics
Hoping they go up to an A, very much doubt it.
Sciences hardly ever increase and History very rarely increases for people. Can only try tbh
Ended up with A*ABB. Firm offer is currently pending and waiting on remarks

Good luck! Apparently 1/5 of remarks lead to a change in grade but usually only if it's 1/2 mark difference so it's not looking too great for me either...

Tell me how it goes!

If you need it for a Uni place you should arrange a priority remark ASAP

When did you apply for a remark? I applied for a priority remark for econ because i was 1 mark off my LSE offer, got paper 1 and paper 2 remarked, but i have no idea when i might hear back, my insurance uni starts in 3 weeks so i'm quite desperate too.
