I did IGCSE Edexcel french and I got a 7. I was 1 mark off an 8 and I’ve put in my speaking exam and my reading and writing to be remarked. Has anyone had any experiences with this? Did your grade go up/down and how long did it take?
I’m also having my English language (AQA) paper remarked but I’m nervous as I got 2 marks away from an 8. However if I lose 7 I’ll go down to a 6. For this reason I only put 1 paper in at a time.
For physics I put my paper to be remarked too: this is a long shot I think as I was 4 marks away from a 7 but I just feel desperate for it to go up because the 6 really ruins my string of 7s and 8s
Any remark stories/advice welcome
Thanks everyone!!

I'd say with the french you have a high chance of the grade going up!! they are fairly subjective. physics doesn't have a high chance of going up!!
I sent my a level bio for a remark and i needed one mark for an A and i got it. so it can happen in a science subject hope this helps

Hi, I had my English language paper remarked at gcse as it was nearing an A* and the school wanted to try & bring it up. It went up about 13 marks I think, which was totally unexpected, to an A*. This also happened with my English lit and lang paper at AS level. English changes quite often with a remark as it’s so subjective

Woah that’s incredible!! 13!!!! I’m worried I’ll lose marks as if I lose 8 I’ll end up with a 6 but I think it’ll be fine as I’m only having one paper marked at a time. May I ask how long the results of the remark took?

How did you find out how many marks you got in English Language ? my results sheet only told me how many marks I got for non-AQA exam boards

I asked my exam officer at school and she had a list of everyone's marks in every subject and also the grade boundaries. However if you were very close to the grade, the subject teachers also had a list of people to talk to who needed remarks.

8 marks seems like quite a lot to lose, so hopefully you’ll be safe, or even better it’ll go up! My paper wasn’t submitted for a remark until September as the school had to wait for me to sign & give permission. I think I had the results in October, but if yours has already been submitted you’ll probably hear back in around 2 weeks. Good luck!!

I actually did not do GCSE'S!! I came form an American System so I have a different system. What I know is that med schools are more concerned with your A Levels!! Don't stress your GCSE's (as long as they're above 5). In that case you should consider retaking. I'm rooting for you, you can do it!!!
