    Hi, I'm currently on a gap year, having completed both AS and A2 Maths. My overall mark for the whole A-level was 2 UMS from an A so I was planning on retaking core 1, core 2 and Statistics 1 as I thought this would be easier than retaking the A2 modules. However, I'm retaking all 3 modules of the AS because I thought they'd changed the rules so that you have to retake the whole AS but now looking back I don't know where I heard that from. So basically I was just wondering if anyone knows if I'd just be able to retake the Statistics module? Thanks

    You should be able to do just 1 module and get the required ums from that module.

    Nothing has changed and you will be able to take a single module to improve your overall grade.

    Yes you can do just one module.

    I would have thought C1 was easiest to improve but it depends what UMS you got the first time. S1 can be a bit more unpredictable ...

    Are you applying to uni? What did you put on your UCAS form about resits?

    That's good news then! I got 94 on C1 and 81 on S1, that's why I think it would be easier to retake S1 but yeah it can be more unpredictable :/
    Yeah I've applied for Medicine and Biomedical Sciences and I put retaking all three I think...

    If you change your mind about which papers you'll need to let unis know.

    Try a few papers and see which is easiest to revise for.

    94 for C1 is quite high, so yes, S1 might give more leeway for improving.

    You might want to check the dates to see which fits better with your A2 exams?
