    are you saying that in one subject you have AAAD with 2 modules still to go?

    in which case, i would strongle discorage resitting, and instead put all your efforts into the other two modules.

    for maths my breakdown modules are AAABAE but this averages out as A, which is all the uni care about....

    no, i don't think the uni's even get to know your individual marks on the papers, just the overall grade. personally i wouldn't resit and do as ickle katy has suggested and work hard in the others.

    i always resit the exams cos they is a chance i might get a better mark. And if it was one point off a C, then u should resist it.

    I do too- especially if it's an AS module because the AS exams are always a couple of weeks before the A2 exams so it's not as if it really interferes.

    i think that you should resit. if you are getting a's in all of the other modules then you are definatly capable of getting that c that you deserve, go for it and i hope that it turns out ok!

    By all means resit, its important that you get the best results you can. I know it sounds geeky to some people but they'll be the ones refgretting it in the long term. If you were to resit you might get that all important C. After all, the more you know the better you'll do.

    to all of you who think she should resit...let me tell you the situation with my best mate.

    shes in Year 13 now, and last summer when she got her AS results was happy but had a D in one module in both English and Biology, so my school suggested she resit.

    so jan she did, and did 2 more modules.

    now we have the situation that she brought the resits up to BB and the new modules are both on DD.

    with only one sitting left...does she raise these up to BB or get the last sets of modules on BB?

    the worst thing that could happen is that you make too much work for yourself and end up with all DDDD. If you can cope, you may as well have the attitude that re-sits are just another chance to get a better grade.

    but if you are going to be the type of person who works for Exams, i wouldnt put yourself through more than the bare minimum or you will end up regretting it.

    No, uni's dont distinguish.

    For example to get an 'A' you need to obtain 480/600 UMS marks in 6 modules. Therefore it makes no difference if it were a student who just got a borderline 'A' with 481/600 UMS marks, and a student who breezed their subject by obtaining 600/600 UMS marks. All the university will know is that they both obtained an 'A'. So don't worry about it.
