    I've checked the unofficial mark scheme for C1 and i failed so badly, idk how and why but i've got around 45 marks which is most likely a D.

    I wanted to know what do i need to get in C2 and S1 to secure myself a B and if next year at A2 if its still possible to get a A overall?

    Lol i meant A next year for A2 maths because i heard A2 and AS get averaged out to produce a final grade. Also what do i need to get a B in overall in AS with a D for C1 currently?

    Your A level grade is determined by adding together your ums score from each of the six exams. You need a total UMS of 420 out of 600 for a B, 480 for an A. For AS you need 240 for A and 210 for a B. Each paper is worth a potential 100 UMS and, while grade boundaries vary from year to year and unit to unit, the ums gained roughly equates to your percentage score. The better mark you get in C2 and S1 the easier it will be to achieve a good overall grade. You should plan to resit C1 next year.

    You need to work out why your C1 performance was so modest to determine what you need to do and what outcome is realistic. Either you prepared inappropriately for the exam and need to modify your study and exam preparation or your aptitude for maths is not as good as it would need to be to achieve the highest grades next year and you need more help.
