    Hello my darlings! I got my AS results for Geography back this week and was super happy as I got 185/200 UMS overall.
    I'm interested as I got 140/140 in the main exam and only 45/60 in the other and want to know if i should retake that one or nah :P

    It's quite high, I'd be happy with that outcome but it's up to you if you want to retake

    Nope don't retake it, it won't make a difference for an A* next year, you need 90% UMS as well next year to get an A*
    So that would be 90% of 200 which is 180

    Thanks I was just wondering if it would make any difference as I wasn't really prepared for such a good result! I was expecting a B!

    The only point in retaking is to increase your chances of getting an A overall but I wouldn't think it worth it. You need at least 180 from A2 to get an A*.
