    I currently have 82 marks in a module but i need 108 marks to get an A, do you think i can really improve that much by retaking it?

    Yes easily..

    I got AAE in my history AS level.

    I'm retaking my E (it was a dire E aswell. One mark lower and it would have been a U:confused: ) to hopefully get an A or B grade minimum. It's definately possible if you work hard enough.

    Good luck

    What subject is it?? Sometimes with the more expressional subjects luck is a factor in the question and the marking so you never know, as long as you try your very best you may well go up!
