    Yesterday i got my results back for my November Maths GCSE resit papers, and managed to get a really high C again, but no B. I'm in year 12 right now, studying 3 A-Levels, only one of which this year will actually count to my final grade which is AS Law. If I work 3 - 6 hours a week from now to the May/June on Maths, would it be possible for me to get an A? Is it worth it for me to resit again just to get a B or above? And if I don't will this C affect my chances of getting into the Uni I want?

    I'd be surprised if you improved to an A if you are stuck on a C grade but a B is certainly realistic. Have you researched the universities you are interested in to see whether they require a particular GCSE mathematics grade?

    The problem is that I got 101 marks instead of 105 which is a B, in my July exam, and I got 90 in my resit but I hardly had any time to revise since I only knew that I would be doing it a month before and I had my A-Level Mocks alongside so I was really unprepared. Yeah I think you're right, an A which is like 120 - 133 is slightly unrealistic but yeah most Uni's that I want to study at require the B so I think I really should take my last chance.

    The worst thing about it is that the year prior a B was 98 marks, and I got 100 lol.
