# What should I do regarding Geography? watch

1. June this year I sat an exam in Geography which was worth 40% of my GCSE.
There was a possible 80 UMS and I only got 65, by far my lowest grade.
65/80*40 = 32.5%. You need 90% for an A*. So my question is should I re-sit this GCSE or just try extremely hard in my CA (25%) and 2nd Exam (35%).

100-32.5 = 67.5
Which means I need 57.5% (UMS) in both to get an A*.
If I get full marks in the CA then that leaves me with 32.5%/35% in my Geography Exam this year to get an A*. 32.5/35*100= (approx) 92%
92% of 70 (70=Full UMS) = 64.4UMS. >55% raw mark.
If there's any problems with these calculations please tell me^^

So what do you guys think? Should I re-sit or just try really hard.

Sorry no one's been able to help. If I were you I would just revise really hard and get good grades in the CA.
