    Hello, i'm currently doing A2 OCR biology, I got a B at AS and were resitting our coursework due to something the exam board did while moderating, (should come out with a mid-high B) I need some tips to get an A at A2, is it possible to still get an A overall? would I need a resit? and possibly some revision techniques?

    I got 72/90 UMS and 114/150 UMS for the exams.
    34/60 UMS in coursework which should go to at least 45/60 UMS after resit (hopefully)

    It depends, resitting means way more work, you don't necessarily need a resit as long as you have a B at AS, because if you have a B at AS and get 90+ UMS at A2 you get an A*, but A2 is harder than AS by a fair bit so it depends on how hard you're willing to work. I wouldn't resit, but some people would in case they don't do as well at A2

    im not really finding it difficult, I just need to practice a lot of exam style questions to know what they want to see
