    I'm not sure which one is better to resit. I did a lot better in core 1 (78 UMS) as opposed to core 2 (71 UMS) but I feel as though relearning core 2 would be really difficult (I haven't even started yet).

    I got a C in AS maths, I was 6 UMS off a B which is ideally what I want. I'm not doing A2 this year and I have basically forgotten basically all the content.

    Anyone in the same boat? Advice?

    If you think you can get a *good* A on C1 if you resit, then go for it - as that's what you'd need. 6 more UMS would be 84/100.

    A low B on C2, when you've not studied any of the content for a while is probably harder to pull up. Try a couple of papers of each now and see how much you remember, before deciding which one you want to take.

    To be fair, C2 builds on C1, so if you retake C2, there'd be no harm doing C1 as well, other than extra revision/resit fees.
