    I am from the states and wanted to apply to the University of Manchester Business School. In their prospectus it said for their BA Econ program they wanted a minimum of a 35 (a 6,6,5 for hl subjects and no sl could be less than a 5). I received a 33 on my diploma and did get a 6,5,5 for hl's but got a 6,6,4 for my sl's. I took IB Econ HL and was predicted a 7 in addition to having a perfect score (on my internal assessment) heading into the exam. For this reason I am not sure why I received a 5 in econ and want to have my econ exams re-marked.

    My questions are as follows: should I bother to get my econ test remarked and do I stand a chance of being admitted with my scores the way they are if my econ score remains a 5 (which would leave me with a 33)?

    Why don't you get one of your HL subjects marked...and see which subject would be capable to get a 6. In addition, try to remark your SL course with the 4. Hope you'll be fine!

    You can apply for remarks for many or all of the subjects, I recommend it if you feel that you could earn that mark back. The bonus of IB remarks is that you can't get a lower score than you have already attained, so you may as well. Good luck

    True. But what are chances of getting a better grade?

    that's what I was worried about. I want to avoid paying that 85 usd fee I had a perfect score on the internal assessment (supposedly the ibo did not change the scores on any economics internal assessments for our school) and I know I did not have a bad day on the day of the exam. Just kind of scared of having my paper remarked.

    Well...
    If you are sure that you got a perfect score on the IA and you performed really well in the exam, then ALL I can think of is moderation on your IA.
    Many people posted, refer to my thread in this Forum FYI, that their IA marks were downgraded by a considerable amount
