    I am sorry in advance for the stupid question I am asking, I think it is quite a stupid question because it's subjective but I do think that getting others' opinions will help me make a decision on this matter.

    Basically, I am in my gap year and am planning to retake some modules. I decided on my other modules but AQA Biology modules are posing to be quite hard for me to decide on.

    I got 445/600 UMS overall, with my main modules being:

    Unit 1 - 78/100

    Unit 2 - 114/140

    Unit 4 - 76/100

    Unit 5 - 102/140

    I was initially thinking to retake Unit 5 and Unit 2, but I think that the Synoptic Essay from Unit 5 will basically force me to revise the other units in order to obtain better marks on it, I did find Unit 1 and Unit 4 easier to learn, however there are less UMS to be obtained overall so I am worried I might not get over 35 UMS to boost my grade.

    Have any of you guys had experiences in retaking these? If so, what are your opinions? They are greatly appreciated.
