    66 ums
    I would say that retaking both unit 1 and 3 would take the pressure off unit 4. How confident are you feeling for unit4?

    My school won't allow me to resist my PSYA2 but they said I can resist PSYA1 and PSYA3
    Out of interest why won't they let you resit PSYA2? Surely it would be easier to increase say a D to a B than 82 to 90+? (Although having said that if you did manage to retake PSYA3 and get 90+ you might be on track for an A* so maybe that's why).

    I'd also definitely recommend retaking PSYA1, in fact I think you might need at least one of your current 3 to go up to get the A overall, and this is probably easiest with PSYA1. If you could get a few more ums from another one this would take more pressure off as well as cpdavis said, as it's quite a lot of pressure to need 92ish ums on both PSYA1 and PSYA4

    Thank you so much for helping me out

    I'm good at essays but I can't do the small questions in the PSYA1. That's what I'm worried, shall i just learn the mark shemes?

    In that case definitely worth the PSA3 retake (presumably essays and more fresh in your mind?) and aiming for 90+ in the and PSYA4. Then if you could get the PSYA1 up a bit to about the 82 you had in PSYA3 then you potentially could get an A* not just an A, although obviously will be hard work!

    I didn't do this syllabus and I finished a levels 2/3 years ago, but I would definitely recommend learning the mark schemes, doing as many past papers as possible, going through the syllabus and using it as a kind of check sheet for revision, if you know everything on there then you should be ok. Hopefully having done A2 will also make the AS unit seem easier. I personally think the school are a bit mad and you would be better off retaking 2 and 3, but it's still doable if you put in the effort.

    Ah thank you for your advice, I'll definitely try doing that.
