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.
results day morning

i got AAB and needed AAA
Really hoping you get those 3 marks!
This is the issue with subjective A Levels, I honestly thought my History essays were very good and worthy of an A grade.

thank you so much, i really hope so too! are you sending off your history papers to be remarked?

also Edexcel seemed to mess up a lot of English grades, my friend was awarded 0 in one of her papers which is not even impossible seeing as you get marks for simply writing stuff. I wish Edexcel would get it together

Does anyone have access to the OCR 2019 Bio mark schemes? Quite a few marks off, and need to decide whether or not to do it - my university place doesn't depend on it, though

Ah well out of the sciences Biology usually does increase from time to time! So fingers crossed.
My physics is 3/4 marks from an A, also trying my best to not expect any change - most likely won’t but hoping my firm accepts me regardless

I'm sorry this is unrelated but I'm so unsure as to what to take for a level what others did you chose aside from physics and what is your ambitions for the future (career path or university course?) I want to take physics but don't want it to limit my options also I hope your remark goes well and you get an A

Maths, Further Maths, Physics, History
Was undecided between Architetcure and Phys Nat Sci but p
Opted for Architecture in the end.
And thank you!
If you’re planning to take Physics, Maths is pretty much essential and they go hand in hand.
What uni course are you thinking of?
