Hey guys. Need some assistance so I thought I'd make a thread. Basically I'm in my third year of college this year doing a2 chem, a2 maths & as psychology. 2 years ago in my AS year I got a C grade at AS Psychology (Unit 1: 72 & Unit 2: 55)
The year after I took Psychology to A2 level and ended up getting a B grade overall at A-level (Unit 3: 100 & Unit 4: 70) which I was happy about considering i got a c at as level. Anyway this year i decided to do AS psychology to try & get an A grade. However as I got 170 ums at a2 and an a* requires 180 at a2 and an A grade, i was thinking of re doing my unit 4 exam in summer to try bump my ums in it from 70 to 80 and go for the a*. Do you guys recommend i resit this exam? Bearing in mind I will have 10 exams in summer including this. Cheers

Are you doing the AQA course?
If so, I think that doing Unit 4 will tie in quite well with Unit 1 because they both have that explicit research methods section in, so the same content you learn will apply to and be used in both papers. The rest is just AO1 content.

Yes I am doing AQA. I was really struggling to decide but I've decided not to do unit 4 again and just focus on my other A2 exams & AS Psychology. Thanks for the opinion though +1
