GCSE English Lit review of marking

My DS has been told that he is 1 mark off of a 6 in the AQA exam. According to the boundary scores he is at 97 and the boundary for a 5 is 83 - he would have to lose 14 marks to drop to a 4.

He does not want to take English further and is doing his science A-levels so all is good. Is it worth the risk for a 6 or should he stick with his 5? He would like as many opinions as possible to help him make his decision. Thx

Following as my DS was 2 marks off the next level up and I'm also unsure whether to bother. He's following science and maths a levels so not likely to be relevant in any further education...

My son went up by 14 marks on the Eng lit remark. Not sure if that helps.
