    hi

    i just did biology, chemistry and physics exams (one module of GCSE), and i think i did quite badly on the chemistry. i really want to get an A* on this exam, because that's my predicted grade. I know i can do that, because i did well on the mock, and my chemistry teacher said he'd be surprised if i didnt get that grade. I dont think biology or physics went that badly.

    I managed to work out that if i get less than 70% on this module, then it is impossible to get an A* in my final grade. Do you think it is worth resitting if i get below 70%?

    thank you

    Well, it depends what you want to do in the future. If you plan to continue with Chem then you may want to resit for an A*.

    If not (or even you plan to continue it really) an A is still a brilliant result so I wouldn't worry about it. Then again, I don't know what you're like- you may really want an A*. Only you know if you'd be happy with an A or not.

    i personally wouldn't bother because your GCSE grades aren't majorly important so there's no point in putting extra pressure on yourself.. just make sure you get good gcses, and then great a levels

    Well, plenty of people do Chem with an A at GCSE and go on to get an A at A Level. So it's still rests on whether you'd be happy with an A not an A* at GCSE.

    Perhaps you should wait until you get your results back- you never know, you may well have got over 70% anyway

    As far as I know, it is not possible just to take one unit once the award has been certified. It is usually possible to carry forward coursework marks though, as long as the specification is still current.
