    Hi Guys,
    So Basically, Exam time is in few months and I need to decide which exams to resit. I want to keep my AS resits to minimum so I can concentrate more on my A2 exams. I need to get BBB for my course, which is healthcare science. My grades are below: Any advice is appreciated!
    Note: These are all in UMS marks!
    C1: 71/100 = B
    C2: 58/100 = D
    S1: 53/100 = D
    This gave me an overall, C
    Total UMS of 182, and I need 210.. So I was thinking of retaking C2 and trying to achieve 90/100 UMS marks.. instead of trying to resit 2 exams to get to 210 marks..

    Chem1: 60/100
    Chem2: 81/100
    Chem 3/ ISA : 18/60 Really poor I know (:mad::mad:
    Currently on 159, and need 210

    Bio 1: 45/100
    Bio 2: 91/140
    Bio 3/isa: 33/60
    Currently on 169 and need 210

    So from what I can work out, If I just retake C2 and aim for 90/100, I would get a B in maths AS, For chemistry, resit unit 1 and aim for 90 and 42 ( which is a B) in the ISA and Biology just retake unit 1 and aim for 86/100

    What do you guys think? I don't want to resit both, unit 1's and 2's because the workload would be immense and I know couple of people who decided to do that last year in my sixth form but it just ended up distracting them from A2 exams..
    I am a really good student, I was just never good at exams as I had poor exam techniques but right now I am much better, and I am really good at A2... Any advice is appreciated
