Thought this could be useful.

Do look up the process on exam board websites as well - if a university place depends on the re-mark then it can be fast-tracked [priority re-mark].

Often worth a remark- DS had AS maths remarked and went up a grade, then had A2 maths remarked and gained 6 UMS!! shocking marking first time round ( this was AQA)

Is it really surprising when they recruit non-teachers and pay peanuts?

That is most annoying and shocking as success to secure a place at university depends on these grades (and the GCSE ones)! :shock: The future of young people is at stake here and that shouldn't be treated with thoughtlessness.

So is this advice given in TSR correct? To contact the school first in case of a problem? Our school is only open for 1.5 hours to give out the GCSE results!

A friend is getting them for us as dd1 will be abroad with us competing in her sport. How fast do we need to respond?

You have a few weeks to get a request for a re-mark in. Teachers will have access to the marks for each question so can see any 'concern' areas - grade boundaries will be on the exam board websites.
