I just wanted to know weather you can jump from a grade U to a grade A? I mean I know where I went wrong in the January exam papers, and now I'm working my ass off to get higher than C. So is it possible?
Also, if you got a U and don't resit, and get an A in unit 2, will that be a C?

It's not possible. Drop the subject.

My college has a policy that says if you fail something you HAVE to resit it

For example WJEC maths AS:
U in one paper <40/100
A overall = 240/300
so technically possible but would need a minimum of 40/100 and then 100% in everything else
WJEC chem, biology AS:
U in one paper <48
A overall = 240
So even if you had a minimum of 48/120 you caould not achieve an A as you would need 192 more marks with only 180 available
I would assume this was the case in the majority of cases for the majority of boards, I couldn't say for sure because I don't know what board or subject but I would say that it is definetly impossible in many cases to achieve an A, but you can stil pull your grade up.

I got an E on an AS exam, retook it and got an A so yes, it is possible as long as you put the hard work in!
Also, the fact you know where you went wrong puts you in a good position because you know exactly what you need to work on to get a better result.

If the exams are weighted evenly, check the marks you got on your U and add 80marks (an A) and divide by 2, if 60+ its a C. But yeah dude, its definitely possible. I used to do awful in January exams but would always fix things up in the summer. I probably got about 2 or 3 U's and and couple E's for some modules but via resits and general grinding out work I would bump things up to A/B boundaries. From here on in just do your absolute best, what results you've achieved in the past do not matter, just make sure you do your best to get the grades now brah.
