Are GCSE remark appeals generally successful: i.e. in raising the grade?



Answers:
Difficult to say, because they can also lower the grade. Only appeal if you are confident you will win and its an important subject, ie maths English.
well i sent my a-levels back to be remarked- that was 7 years ago and i still havent heard what my final result is!! but thats not so bad as i just put on my CV that i got the grade i was expected when actually i probably didn't- woohoo!!
I honestly wouldn't bother unless you desperately need a higher grade for a reason, and are convinced that your marking hasn't been fair. Its rare to get a whole grade higher after a remark, especially as a lot of GCSE's are now a high proportion of coursework, and a few exams over 2 years and not just 1 at the end. I wouldn't bother, move on and go for good grades in your A levels or college instead.
not always. they usually only add a few marks on, but then again they can always take marks off. i wasn't successful, my SAT's in year 6 never came back, they were sent off by my teacher for a remark, but now no one knows what mark i actually got.
If they were everybody would ask for a remark! Unless there is a real mismatch between the grade awarded and the grade predicted by your school, I would not bother. It is expensive and unlikely to result in success.
