Disappointing but also frustrating AS results. Should I consider remarks and resits? Watch
I would like AAB overall (A-level English Literature, A-level History and A-level Government and Politics, respectively). In the light of this, do you have any more suggestions?
To get an overall A in A-level History, wouldn't it be advisable to resit any AS History modules? Is achieving an overall A in A-level History possible with my AS History result?
I have 4 A2 exams to sit (1 A2 English Literature exam, 1 A2 History exam and 2 A2 Government and Politics exams). Unfortunately, in addition to this, I pretty much have to resit AS English Literature Unit 1. I'm considering a resit of AS History Unit 1 as well, but that may spread me too thin like you said, so I probably will not resit it.
Would you say sitting 4 A2 exams and resitting 1 AS exam is manageable?
Thanks a ton.
What I'm doing is remarking a least one of my history modules as I got a unexpected D in it so my teacher has agreed to pay (I got a B in the other and I may remark that one with my own money idk yet) and for English I'm remarking the exam.
If my grades stay the same then I'm going to resit my lowest history module ( I need an A overall) and my english exam.
Thanks for the response.
Hmm. I'll consider it, but I really don't feel like resitting the Government and Politics Unit 2 exam. I find this unit not only difficult, but utterly boring as well. That is not a good combination.
Surely, an overall grade of B is achievable with my AS results? If it's of any relevance, the Government and Politics modules I'll be studying for A2 are WAY more interesting and enjoyable all round than the modules I studied for AS. For this reason, I have a feeling I'll perform much better at A2. I enjoyed and put effort into studying and revising barely more than half of the AS syllabus, which probably explains why I did brilliantly on the Unit 1 exam but terribly on the Unit 2 exam. I'm sure this won't occur at A2.
I forgot to mention that I don't feel my U grade in the English Literature Unit 1 exam reflects how I felt I did in the exam, so I'm definitely going to get it remarked. If the remark yields no significant improvement, then I'll resit it.
However your attidtude towards gov and politics is wrong man. You are capable of an A* next year if you resit that one exam, surely you want more than a B.
Not because B is a bad grade, its very respectable but you seem capable of much more. Basically i think your being lazy.
The unseen poetry section (20% of the marks) was an utter disaster for sure, but I didn't feel that the poetry section (40% of the marks) and the prose section (40% of the marks) were nearly as bad.
4 A2 exams and 2 AS resit exams isn't a lot of exams, no, but it nevertheless involves wading through more content than one would have to in the case of, say, 12 GCSE exams.
