    So this is what I achieved for AS:

    English literature: C
    Maths: E (dropping)
    Psychology: B
    Sociology: A

    I met my targets for Psychology and Sociology but missed my target for English by a grade. Is it worth resitting English in order to achieve a B or A? Also what grades would I need to achieve at A2 in order to get AAA in total?

    You can average A in A2 while having Cs in AS.

    C = 60% UMS.
    If you get full UMS in A2, that averages to 80%.

    If you get a high C such as 68%, you only need 92% in A2 to make it into an A*.

    So, it is very possible my friend. Good luck.

      "only" 92%

      I think the OP would be better off retaking some AS exams alongside some A2 exams to make it a bit easier.

      It is very possible with the A and the B however with the C in English it may be a little harder. I advise you really try to excel in your next piece of English coursework to give yourself a comfortable footing for the exam next Summer. I got a C at English Lit AS and came out with a B yesterday (what I wanted). It will be hard work but I think it might be possible.

      This is if you are not considering resists.

      P.S. those are great results well done.

      OP would get an A* if that happened. 80% overall + 90% over A2...

      Contrary to what everyone is saying, no it is not possible to get AAA....

      But it is possible to get A*AA!

      The A you can still get an A in, the B you could increase to an A, unless it's 70%, then you could only get an A*.

      For the C even if you got 69% (hehe), you would still need at least 91% at A2, since for an A* you need 80% average over AS and A2 and 90%+ at A2 you would get an A*

      Should I resit English? I got an A for my coursework but a C for the actual exam with made it a C overall. I'm confident that I can get another A for coursework in A2 but I'm not sure about the exam.

      Thanks for the advice everyone

        I got ABC in AS as well. This year I finished with AAB. I got full marks in my January Psychology paper which brought it up to an A from a B.

        I received a C in AS for English Lit and because I got one off an A* in my A2 paper it brought it up to a B, I am however retaking my AS English Lit paper during my gap year to level it to an A. So yes, more than possible.

        I would not recommend resiting English as it would take focus away from other subjects and it requires learning a lot of things again. Try talking to your teacher to see what he/she thinks. However, remember you can improve exam technique for English throughout the year!

        Well of course it would be possible for you.. you already have AAB.

        If you're going for AAA resit some of your AS modules. you can't get an A from a C without resits, you can get an A* though.
