    Was just hoping to get some advice. I got a B at AS Level with 143 UMS (140 for a B, 160 for an A) - do you think it's worth remarking to try and get extra UMS or is it not worth the risk seeing as I am only 3 UMS into the boundary. Exam board is OCR.

    Many Thanks

    Might not be worth the risk because you may drop to a grade C, and then I think you have to keep that C. A better option in my view would be to resit a paper whilst doing A2 because you'll know the content already. Just make sure you keep on top of it as well as learning about the A2 units

    Too risky. Also very nearly too late.
