    I am applying for engineering at Cambridge. I got 98, 97 and 80 ums out of 100 in C1, C2 and S1 accordingly. Is it worth retaking S1 to strengthen my application?

    If Cambridge don't mind then why not. Find out if it will be a disadvantage to re-take modules.

    Not really because you won't have the results before the offer decision.
