Hi

I was predicted double AA got BB 17 marks off a AA. Am I being over ambitious for a remark?? Any experiences of CIE getting it wrong and going up in marks?

Please let me know.

Inevitably most people who get a remark and gain points are the ones you hear about. It is important to remember that your remark could be lower and that would mean your grade would be lower than currently. 17 points is a lot to find but mistakes do happen. We’re your teachers predicted grades generally correct or did lots of people miss their predictions?

I don’t know about others but I worked so hard since my mock and thought the Papers went well.

Ask your teacher if generally everyone achieved their predicted grades - if they didn't, it could be that the predictions were ambitious and you may decide not to go for the remark - if you really feel they went well (which it seems you do) then, as long as you accept that your grades may go down, then go for it.
