1. I wanted to put my mind at rest here, because I'm worried about my M2 exam I took today.
I would like an A in maths ideally, and last year I got 236 UMS. M1 was my weakest module, so I retook that and I was happy with how it went. Hopefully I've brought my UMS up to 250.
Most of my answers for M2 were wrong, but Im confident I used the right methods and so will have
picked up most of the method marks. Do a still have a good chance at getting an A, and how many UMS should I need in C3 and C4?
2. Try maximize c3 c4. I wouldn't think about what you need but aim for 90's in both.
3. Assuming you have 250 UMS, you can still get an A even if you have got as low as 30 UMS in M2 (but you would need to get 100 in C3 and C4).

If you got 50 UMS in M2 you would need to average 90+ in C3 and C4. (you would also get an A*!)

If you got 60 UMS in M2 you would need to average 85+ in C3 and C4.

Thank you both for your input. 😊 I'm definitely going to aim to do as well in C3 and C4 as I can. It's encouraging that I could still manage it, I just seriously need to tackle my weak areas.
