How to get an A* in A Level Maths after getting a C in Year 12? Watch

    Hi guys,

    I do the OCR Maths board and I basically did not revise for Maths a level last year (I know...really bad) so I ended up getting a C overall with 80 UMS in C1, 37 in C2 and 67 in S1.

    For my A2 modules, I am doing C3, C4 and M1.

    I retook C1 the other day and I have been working hard at C2 papers to get it to an A grade. In the worst possible scenario, assuming I get 80 in C1 and 90 in C2 and I leave the 67 UMS in Stats, what would I have to get in my remaining modules to get an A*?

    Should I retake stats and revise hard for it? :/ I'm just soooo stuck!

    I will obviously revise hard for C3, C4 and M1 - I just don't know how much effort I should put in for stats because I don't want to neglect my other subjects? Thoughts?

    Thanks guys!
