    I got an overall C at AS maths, which consists of B in C1, B in C2 and D in D1. Do you think I can still get an overall A in my A level maths? I'm currently doing C3, C4 and S1 this year.
    Also, would this affect my uni application? Can I still get into a RGU?

    You will need to retake some AS modules to get an average of 80 ums + need also an average of 80 in the A2 modules.

    Thanks. I'm thinking about retaking C1 and C2. Would they be easy to retake once I'd be done with C3 nad C4?

    C2 will definitely be a lot easier. Not sure about C1.

    You will need to average around 90% on your A2 modules, which would be quite optimistic here. I would recommend resitting at least a module.

    OK so a total of 207 - you need 480 for a grade A.

    480 - 207 = 273/300

    So I would resit but you need to think which ones so you don't affect your A2 and other subjects.

    C1 and C2 would be easiest but 78 is quite high already - what happened in D1?

    I agree that it will probably be worth resitting at least one of them but although d1 is your lowest unless your school is evil and makes you do d2 (in which case I pity you) it is probably not the wisest choice as you don’t build upon any of the topics in other modules. Whereas in c1 or c2 you are learning the more complicated elements. After having learn c3 and c4 the first two papers seemed a lot easier so shouldn’t require as much of your time.

    The thing that affected my D1 was probably the language barrier, as I am an exchange student.

    Also, are good unis still going to consider me (excluding Oxbridge, obviously)?
    E.g. Warwick, Leeds, Loughborou?
