You can't get A* in AS modules as far as I remember. You can resit it if you feel like you won't be able to make your 480 UMS from this year's modules.

getting 480 ums is doable i think, but that's not the overriding condition for A* is it? i need 480 ums AND 90% in C3 and C4?

Why would it override it? You need 480 UMS with 90 average in C3 and C4. Not sure what's confusing.

If you average over 90 in C3+4 then it is highly likely that you will get an A* unless you completely mess up the A Level applied unit.

Retaking C2 will help with guaranteeing an A in case you don't do as well as you hope in C3+4. But getting a higher UMS in C2 won't influence whether you get an A* or not.

You don't have to resit C2 to get an A*. From what is stated, you only need an 80% average across 6 modules and 90% average for C3 and C4.

my intepretation of what they said is even if you got 480 ums but not 90 average c3 c4, then u wont get A*.

If you get all modules 100UMS and C3 at 90 and C4 at 89 then you dont get an A* - as an example, so you need the average if they say it.

Yes you need 480 UMS and 180 of that 480 comes from C3 and C4 for an A*.
Your teacher has not given very clear/good advice. Resitting C2 will just make you closer to 480 ums so less stress for your applied module in maths.

for an A star you need 480 ums over all modules(AS + A2) and 180 from c3 and c4. (90 percent plus).

Not for an A*. You have a while to decide so I recommend having another think next year and see how confident you are with the A2 modules. If you feel that you will average at least 70 UMS in them then retaking C2 probably won't affect your grade.

But there's a very good chance that you'll find C2 easier after finishing A Level and get a higher UMS in it without too much revision. It's nice to be able to guarantee the A as I said before.
