    A rule of thumb might be to resit the modules with the lowest marks.
    Then again, another might be to resit the ones you find the most straightforward?

    It really is up to you. Ask yourself:

    1) Can I handle the additional workload of another maths module? - all the revision and past papers I must do.
    2) Am I struggling with / likely to score low in C3, C4 and/or my applied module (D1/S2/M1 etc)

    A tough trade off, I know. If the answer is yes to one or both of the conditions, maybe its worth resitting?

    Think carefully. 67UMS could certainly be improved upon, but how much so, how much could you actually bring this mark up, would all the extra effort bring only another 5 UMS or would it bring another 30? - Would the extra time I need to devote to S1 take its toll on the amount of practice I do for my other modules?

    But if I would need 87 on c1 and c2 to get an A at AS Level. I find C3 AND C4 doable

    Then it's a no brainer. Do it.
