I got an 8 in English lit but was 2 marks away from a 9. My school said that I could get a remark but that perhaps I shouldn’t because last year they said a student got a remark and dropped 15 marks (and dropped a grade). I am quite happy with an 8 and don’t want to do English for A levels or uni but I got a 9 in my mocks so am slightly disappointed getting an 8. Should I get a remark or not???

If you're not planning on doing anything with English Lit in the future then an 8 is a more than respectable grade. It's highly unlikely that you'll drop 15 marks on a single remark, but there is a risk, and only you know whether or not to take it. More often than not, remarks lead to the grade staying the same but if it's important to you to get that 9 then go for it

I'm in the exact same situation! A mark away from a 9 in english lit, and got a 9 in my mocks... I think I'm going to leave it as it's not such a big deal really

Thank you I don’t think I’ll get the remark because I don’t think it’s worth it as it won’t really affect my future (plus I don’t English as a subject anyway )

I think I’m going to leave it too as it just isn’t really worth it
