    The thing is I can't resit the French as the courses are changing next year. Let me explain, this year was the last year the 2008 specification would be applied, so I don't think I can re-sit it next year as it's going to be a new course
    You can re-sit the outgoing specification. All the units are available next year for those re-sitting. The timetables for next Summer are already out if you want to check.

    Yeah this is possible because it happens with me!
    I got a B at AS Psychology (6 marks away from an A) and then this year I got an overall A grade for psychology.

    As long as you just keep working hard and making sure you do revision and do your best it is completely within your reach to get an A overall!

    Wow thank you so much! I hope I get an A next year, we have coursework so I guess that counts to the overall grade as well😄

    Hello everyone I was wondering if any of you could give me any advice.

    As everyone knows, we have recently received our A-Level results, well I have received my AS results anyway.

    I received an A in spanish, B in English Lang & Lit (new specification), B in French and D in Business Studies (but I knew I would get that so not dissappointed about that one).

    So I'm quite upset about French as I believed I could achieve an A but anyway. I also got a B in English, I believe I got 57 points. I saw this year's grade boundaries and I saw that an A was 60 marks, so that A just slipped away.

    So I was wondering if it was possible to get an A for the overall A-Level as I nearly got A's in both subjects and those grades are quite important for uni. I'm just worried of not achieving the A as French is my favourite subject and I was surprised at English (I finished none of the exams but still got that grade so wow I was quite impressed, I was expecting at least a C) thanks for your help!
    Definitely. Plenty have done it in the past. Aim for full UMS in A2 and that way even if you get less, you'll still be well on your way there

    Oh yeah ofc you're going from AS to A2 (right?) I'm thinking you've got your overall grade and are wanting to bump the three marks up in order to meet a uni requirement (Idk why lol)
    Oh no, I'm going into A2 yes haha

    Eaasy I went from D to A in A2 maths so B to A is definitely achievable
    What modules did you retake? How did you plan on retaking and smashing A2?

    I got a B in Maths for AS this year and also plan to retake.

    That made me feel better. I got a B in my AS Maths and a C in my Computer Science mock.
    I'm going to work harder this year, and resit my Maths modules to try and get straight As. ^^

    I resat C1, C2 and M1
    AS results
    C1-74 - B
    C2-52 - D
    M1-24 - U

    A2
    C1-90 - A
    C2-97 - A
    C3-82 - A
    C4-63 - C
    M1-84 - A
    D1-74 - B

    I REALLY knuckled down on maths in my A2 year. Doing C3 and C4 also makes C1 and C2 child's play.
