    AS level I got a C in Maths (B in pure, C in stats and D in mech) Is it possible to retake all 3 modules again?

    Also if you choose to accept the grade and resit will any additional points gained in resit just be added to the A2 ums mark? If so then is it possible to get above /300 on your results sheet?

    Would it be better for me to decline the grade if I wanted to resit all 3 again?

    If you are carrying on to A2 you do not need to decline the grade I think, as any resits automatically get added to your total for A2, so you will just get a mark/600 with the best mark for each module included.
    BUT if you are applying to Uni and you do not want to declare this grade at AS, then it would be sensible to unclaim it at this stage - as long as it doesn't look strange on your UCAS form (ie you are applying to do Maths!). Some schools do not claim any AS grades and only do so in September when the results are known, if the students are then not carrying on to A2.

    They know your predicted grades BUT if you have 'claimed' your AS grade (ie the result as a grade was on your results slip from the Exam board) then this is official and will need to be entered on your UCAS form under exams already sat!
