Give it a couple more days and see, it may just take slightly longer. If you don’t have them by Monday call your exams officer perhaps.

Great news! It is terrible that they get so many wrong, but well done for sorting it out so quickly.

Nice little earner for them though!Personally do not think school approved remarks should have to pay.

Alexandraaaaaa's one will have been refunded because it resulted in a change of grade. Maybe all schools should be allowed to query a certain percentage free - say 10% of results. The school could prioritise based on whether students have achieved expected grades and how far they are from a boundary. Seems fair that people getting speculative reviews should fund it themselves.

I am supporting my son through some reviews of marking. The school have not commented on whether or not he should get them. So far we have the papers back and there seems to be 9 marks worth of answers in the Chemistry paper which do not have any ticks or crosses - including 1 page with no examiner's markings. I am really hoping that means he has not got credit for that work and there might be the 7 marks he needs for an A* there. Most people 7 marks from a grade boundary would just accept it. We will be pleased if it goes up, but outraged that so many errors happen!

Oh have been where you are with son's place at Oxford at stake!We are not well off but luckily could find the money for remarks but it is a racket having to pay !50 pounds for 3 papers.Plenty of people have not got that money.His grades did go up but we still lost 50 pounds because we had to have both papers remarked on one subject and only one went up.I think if grade goes up in a subject you should get all your money back as it was not you who caused the error it was the exam boards incompetence.
Just heard story of a 43 mark upgrade from WJEC which is an absolute disgrace.Goodluck with your boy's remark hopefully it will work out in his favour.

I am still waiting for my biology a level. AQA got 180 pounds for the privilege of marking 3 papers again so that I can hopefully get 2 marks more for an a grade.

Flipping ridiculous

Thing is at the time you are so desperate you just pay it but watching it year after year I am increasingly amazed they are allowed to continue charging for each paper individually.

You are right. It’s almost criminal.
