    Hello
    I am currently doing A2 maths and want to achieve an A at the end of the year. From AS i have B's in C1, C2 and S1. I am planning on resitting C1 to get an A. What grades will i need in C3 C4 and M1 in order to get an A grade overall?

    I really need to know so i can figure out what i need to resit and what i don't
    As much help is appreciated
    Thanks

    (Assuming you're not doing CIE) It's all about the UMS. Unit grades don't matter, you need 480/600 UMS overall for an A, it doesn't matter how those marks are spread between the 6 units. If you want an A overall I'd re-sit more than just C1 as the AS units are significantly easier than the A2.

    As compost said already, it's all about the total ums. If you get good marks in C1, C3, C4 and M1 you might get an A overall, if you only just manage A in each with the minimum 80 ums then you wouldn't. Retaking C2 as well would be very sensible, after completing C3&4 you will find C2 much easier than last year.
