# How do i work out what retakes i need to do?? (Alevel Maths) watch

1. Hi,

I recently took Alevel maths and didn't get exactly what i wanted (B/A would have been ideal). In fact i didn't even pass...

My results were

AS level mathematics - C
A level mathematics - D
C1 - (54/ 100) d
C2 - (82/ 100) a
C3 - (40/ 100) e
C4 - (32/ 100) u
M1 - (67/ 100) c
S1 - (45/ 100) e

I'm just wondering if anyone knows a way to figure out exactly what retakes i would have to do this June to bring my grade up to a B or A?? How do i calculate this or work this out, in a way that would obviously require as few retakes as possible?

Any information will be greatly appreciated, thanks

3. I haven't done A Level Maths, but I'll assume each module has equal weighting?

If so, retake all the lowest marked modules: C4, S1 C3, C1. Perhaps you could switch out some of these modules for ones you may find easier?
4. The A level is out of 600. Each unit has a max score of 100. How your scores are spread across the 6 units is irrelevant.
Grade boundaries A - 480, B- 420, C - 360, D - 300
Work out how many more marks you want and then decide which units are your best shot. You should be able to gain plenty more marks on C1 and S1. which others you choose depends on what you found easiest.
