    Hi, my maths a level and further maths AS results were good but I'm not sure whether to re-sit any.

    I got 291 for maths from c1 and c2 and s1 which I am very happy with.
    For further maths:
    Fp1: 86
    M1: 74
    M2: 83

    Thinking of re-sitting M1 thoughts? doing c3, c4, s2, fp2, fp3 and m3 this year.

    The only one you should think about resitting is M2 - other than that the way you're going you could aim for an A*.
    I say M2 since it's an A2 unit which will help you in achieving an A*.

    Sidenote - FP1 is not an A2 unit.

    I'm sure you could achieve 100UMS in M1 buts theres no better outcome overall.

    Thanks very much. I wanted to resit m1 so that my overall further maths UMS increases as if i only got 243 UMS in further maths this year its unlikely I will get 480 UMS for further maths overall as the A2 modules are much harder
