I'm asking this question because I'm currently 1 mark off a grade 8 in English Language under the WJEC exam board.
I need one mark on paper 2 English Language for my grade to go up would any of you say it's worth it?
Is there a chance of me going up that 1 mark/ grade above?
PS: I'm paying for the remark myself instead of my school! (Hence why I'm worried and asking)

Yes go for it. Will your school pay for it?

They added in two marks in the end

That's so good! Have you heard anything about WJEC with their marking? And did your friend go up the 1 mark or more?

do it. i was one mark off a nine for classical civilisations and got a remark and ended up with a nine. it's well worth a shot.

Yes and no. My school for some reason sent all of our papers for a remark even if we weren't close to a grade boundary (weird I know). I went up a grade for two subjects but down a grade for another so only do it if you're really close to a HIGHER grade

Yeah, I get what you mean! And weird school haha I'm 1 mark off the next boundary and around 15 off the grade boundary beneath me so doubt I will get downgraded by an add 15 marks.

In my experience, it was. I was 1 mark off a grade 7 for physics and after the remark, got it. Plus, you've got a better chance of moving up a grade because of how subjective english language gcse is.

Yeah, they are low-key expensive like £40.00 for one paper is just peng! I hope I get that one mark I need for the higher grade and for my own money back!

That's good! And yeah true but I am skeptical/worried that I'm not gonna get the grade above because that remark is getting sent off from my own money!

Yeah, fair enough. I needed the grade 7 for physics a level, but a grade 7 to 8 might not be worth it if you have to pay - just consider how much it would affect your uni applications/a levels.
