I'm in year 13 and aiming for an A in Economics. Things haven't gone well so far. I did badly in Unit 1 (F581) and resat it this June, getting 74/100. After a remark, that went up to 80/100. In Unit 2 (F582) I got 83/100 first time around. Unit 3 (F583) didn't go nearly as well as I thought (the paper was excellent, I posted here and told my teacher my exact answers and everyone said I go it right despite the fact that everything that came up was literally everything I knew!) and I got 63/100. I should get my remark results back tomorrow.
So now I'm in a predicament -- to get an A overall I'd need 320/100 and my standing total is 227 -- meaning I'd need 93/100 on Unit 4 (F585) (which is very unlikely). I really don't want to resit Unit 3 because it could potentially be the hardest exam I'll ever take so my options are either to resit Unit 1 or Unit 2.
I pretty much know Unit 1 inside out, but the markers are always stupidly stringent and have given me crappy scores twice now. I can't remember back to Unit 2, but there may be a lot of overlap with Unit 5 (they're both macroeconomics) but I did fine it Unit 2 first time around.
Of course, there's the fact that if I resit another paper, my Unit 5 will go down and I won't get the score I need on either.
I'm in a really difficult situation here and would appreciate TSR's help
