    do I need to retake any modules:

    I'm am currently 8 marks off B in history, but if i get an A/A* in my coursework I only need a C in my final - so is it worth the extra stress in retaking unit 1 which is an utter *****? in geography I'm currently on an A, but as a safety net should I retake my unit 2 exam (as I only got 70%)? if I don't retake this exam i have to get 94/120 to get the A in June? anyway, music is fine as I am on an A with no need to retake - so I will only have three exams in June:

    unit 3 geog
    unit 4 music
    unit 3 history

    would you retake any? or avoid the extra stress and put the extra effort into your finals?


    I need an ABB for bristol (first choice) I should be fine for my music exam but I am really debating if I should retake any modules? find history pretty difficult! obviously I don't want to do retakes but i really don't know what to do :/

    don't bother with a re-sit in a subject you've already got an A in. I'm sort of in same boat with you as regards to geography - I got an A (164/200), but I'm not going to retake my physical module which was only a B grade because I think it's best to focus on the A2 exams now.

    well I'm just on an A, I got 82% last year, and in my A2 january exam I was one mark off an A so I am getting a remark! but I'm just worried about history really! arghh
