    What maths exams should i retake to get A/A* overall in maths.

    I think i have to definitely retake C3 and C4, but I'm not sure about the last exam. Im was thinking D1, but I'm unsure.

    I also do further maths. I did FP1, M1, and D1 for AS. Going to do FP2, FP3, M2 for A2 in 2017.

    In order to achieve an A you need to get 480 UMS in maths, so you are 23 UMS off. To be honest, depending on the grade you get in C3 and C4, you may not even have to retake another exam. For the A* you need the same 480 UMS BUT you must have 180 UMS over C3 and C4. If you get this then you can get the A* by only retaking 2 exams. It may be easier to look at the grade boundaries here:

    You just need to retake C3 and C4, get 180/200 UMS over those two modules to get an A*.

    Or: you can retake C3/4 and get 155/200 UMS over those two modules to get an A.

    If you're not comfortable with that, then retake D1 and bring it up as well.
