    I have received a C grade in AS mathematics and will be dropping it (decided I would from the start. However, I really mocked up a module (C1) and somehow missed a page with 10 marks worth. Should I just keep the AS C grade and worry about my about my 3 A-levels or retake C1 next year and try get the AS grade to a B?

    Thank you!

    I think this all depends on how you feel about maths; if you found it really difficult to study for then I would advise you to not worry about it since you're dropping it anyway and it might pull you down from studying more for your 3 A-Levels which could also drag your grades down.

    After all C is not a really bad grade, however, if you think you didn't struggle a lot in it and that you will be able to cope with studying for 4 subjects then I would suggest go for it but aim even higher than B!

    Good luck
