    For my AS biology I have got a total UMS of 216 with 63 in F211 (B), 105 in F212 (B) and 48 ( A) in my coursework. This overall got me a B at AS. I want to retake one of the module, but I don't know which one I should. I have been adviced by my teacher to do the smaller module as it has less content. Can someone tell me how this OCR biology exam board works? In year 13 how much more UMS do I need to get an A? Also how much UMS is required to get an A*? Finally, would retaking my smaller module make a big enough difference or is it better if I do the bigger module? Thanks guys!
