    What were your module marks for C1, C2 and S1 respectively?

    Again for that, how close were you from the grades above in Chem and Physics?

    To get an A* at A-level maths you will need 180 UMS across C3 and C4 and 480 UMS overall.

    It's quite possible to get an A* with a B at AS. For example if you had 210 UMS at AS then you'd need to get 270 at A2. But you may want to consider re-sitting a module to ease the pressure on A2 for reaching the 480 component of the A*. Whether or not it is worth it will depend on how high your B is.

    What overall grades are you expecting in Chem and Physics?

    AS has very little to do with the A* grade, so there's not much point retaking. To score the A*, you need 480/600 overall and 180/200 over C3 and C4. It won't be easy, however, so you'll need to focus a lot of energy on c3 and c4.

    I would say leave chem and maybe resit one physics but look at what you need at A2 to get into the uni you want to go to

    When you go back in September, you teachers will go through your results and determine with you the best option. And you have to remember that A2's next year are full on, re-doing AS exams can bog you down with more work which could impede your revision for A2 exams.

    You don't need all A*s for Medicine. I'd retake - you'll need at least A's and it may be hard to make up at A2.
