    If you don't want advice then don't ask for it. Personally I wouldn't bother re-sitting. However, to clarify the rules again you need at least 180 from your best attempt at C3 and your best attempt at C4 whenever they are taken. It is that simple.

    If you did worse in a C3 resit then yes, your old grade would count and you need 96 or more in C4.

    But honestly, I would in that situation just resit C3 as suggested and spend the time that you would have learning C4 to an 'A* standard' on C3 (I found it to be the easier of the two modules but I appreciate that everyone has different strengths) it kind of maximises your chance of success, in my view at least.
