    Hi I got 4 c's at as level but I needed 3 a's. Three of the c's where only 3-4% of a B so should I retake the year or resit some modules which I didn't do as well in?

    Hi Josh,

    If you post your module breakdown, I could be a bit more specific, but it would make sense to focus on the AS modules where you can improve most (i.e. the ones where you can increase your UMS by the most) as the AS exams tend to be less challenging than the A2. It may be that a resit of the whole year is necessary, but it depends a bit on the specific marks.

    It is probably worth having a think though about whether the course you have chosen (both for university and A levels) is really suited to your abilities and interests, and whether you might actually be happier - and less stressed-out - by taking a different route. What exactly are your current A levels and plans for university?

    Feel free to PM me if you'd rather not share the information publicly.
