    Grades, UMS and % of A level:
    F331 - B, 63/90, 15%
    F332 - C, 94/150, 25%
    F333 - A/B, 50/60, 10%
    F334 - E, 43/90, 15%
    F335 - B, 85/120, 20%
    F336 - B, 65/90, 15%

    Total - C at 400/600 UMS (B at 420, A at 480)

    I am taking an extra year and wanted to know which exams and how many I would need to resit to secure the A. Naturally I am planning to retake the E (f334) and C (f332) and possibly AS coursework to get from 50 to 60, but that still leaves me short of the A. A2 coursework is out of the question so which exams would I benefit from resitting? Any advice would be appreciated.

    Judging that you need 80 UMS, you need to retake F332, F334 and maybe F335.

    Thanks for the reply! I thought the same thing, but instead of f335 what if I retake f331 and get a higher mark? While it's worth 5% less, it's a lot less work than f335 which lets me focus on the other units better.

    Sorry I don't take this exam board, I just judged from a mathematical point of view. Do what you think you can handle. But bear in mind how much more UMS you can get per unit.
