    you have 213 at the minute and you need 480 over the 6 modules for an A. So 267 still needed, so an average of 89 per module next year

    if you want an A id seriously consider retaking C1 + C2. It seems daunting but honestly once you cover C3 + C4 you'll find the AS modules much easier. Imagine sitting your gcse maths again next month after revising for a week or two, pretty easy right? well thats kind of what sitting AS maths after learning A2 will be like. You could get 90s in them next year if you work hard and revise for them (lots of people decide to resit then get cocky, dont do that)

    good luck

    Thanks for your advice!

    Do you know when the deadline date is to register for a resit ?
    And when should i inform my college about the resist ?
    Should I inform them during enrolment? or next year ?

    mine were these:
    C1- 78
    C2- 68
    S1- 79
    This added up to a B.

    I'm honestly thinking of retaking all three because I also need an A overall next year.

    my advice to all of you is resit C1 and C2 and unless you are doing S2 don't bother with S1
    Most of what you have done in C1&2 will be revised and extended in c3&4 so the revision load will be small and improvement very possible.*

    But wouldn't the B I got in S1 drag my grade down later?

    Doubt it, 79 ums is a decent score and revising for S1 that you won't be doing any work on in class has the potential to waste a lot of time that could be spent on other units and provide no improvement.

    Thank you... I just have one more question.

    Do you know how far off an A I was in each module and overall in terms of marks?

    Haven't seen the exact breakdowns so roughly 1 or 2 in C1 and S1 maybe 8 or so in C2

    if you're doing alevels in a school just talk to a teacher once you go back in september and they'll help you. In my school we had a teacher who also dealt with exams etc who we talked to for resits

    The main thing with Maths is practice practice practice.....

    You will get to know the format of the majority of the questions pretty quickly

    Like DylanJ42 mentioned, doing C3 and C4 simplifies C1 and C2 so it becomes intuative to get an A in them, given if you put the time and effort to learn C3 and C4 very well.

    I think also, you need to adapt your learning a bit to get higher marks.
    Something like always practicing past papers and going through every textbook question would help as well.

    that's all I can say.

    So you did AS and A2 exams in one year. How did you manage to do that? Wasn't it stressful because I am thinking of doing the same. How did you manage your time if you're doing other subjects?
