    For C1 I have 87 UMS, and S1 I have 84. I got 63 UMS, so a C for S2. I am planning on retaking C2 which I got 74 in.

    I need an A at the end of this year. I still have C3 and C4 to do, so is it worth retaking both S2 and C2, or should I just focus on the C2?

    You have 308 UMS points at the moment, and you need 480 to get an A. That means between C3 and C4 you need to get 172 UMS points, so 86 in each. To give yourself some room for error I'd definitely resit S2 and possibly C2 if you think you can get 85+.

    No, you just need to get 180 between C3 and C4. So you could get 80 in C3 and then 100 in C4 and still come out with an A*.

    An A. I think an A* is slightly out of my reach. In fact, even getting an A may be difficult for me....

    My teacher has recommended that I only resit C2, as the topics are very similar to C3 and C4 and therefore, according to them, easier to pick up marks. The worry that I have with S2 is that it has completely different topics to the Core modules, and C2 and S2 exams are on the same day. So would retaking both C2 and S2 be reasonable considering that maths is a bit of a struggle for me?

    I would sit C2 and S2 to give you the best possible chance of getting an A.
