    Hello, I just got my science coursework results and I got a C! I was two marks off a B, I got 32/48 (I think?!) and I wanted to know,is there still a chance I can get an A* if I try really really hard and get like A's and A*'s in all of the exams that will come?

    thankyou

    It's possible, but it's best just to resit the coursework, just to give you the best chance of getting the top grades, because you never know how the exams will go

    Thankyou for the quick reply! I would have resit the coursework but apparently our school will do it in the easter holidays but I cant come then because I am going on holiday to america and we have already booked the tickets and stuff I literally have no idea what to do

    Are you certain that it's during the Easter holidays? And if not, is it possible you could ask a teacher if you could do it at another time? after school possibly?

    The thing is, for you to get an A*, you would need to get high A*s in all your exams and you would only be able to drop ~8 UMS, which is frankly not enough leeway. It is very much possible though! And you can definitely get the A* or A If you work hard enough

    8 ums in total? ohno I know already I wont be able to do that then and I'm not sure if it's in easter holidays my teacher said it's very likely it will be in the holidays. I told my teacher to tell me ASAP when we are allowed to retake it and I really hope it won't be in the easter holidays! My teacher also said that I'm not the only one who will go on holiday so it might be that it will take place at another time!

    I sure hope you can retake it! It's just silly to do the retake during the holiday.

    You can definitely pull up your marks with a retake, but if you work really hard, you can definitely still get an A* with your current grade. I wish you the best of luck!

    Thankyou so much for your help! It acc calmed me down a bit lol! What I'm gonna do is start loads of past papers I'm literally gonna do all the past papers I can find on the internet and watch videos etc! If I get an A I will still be happy though but I am gonna aim for the A*!
    Thankyou!!
