    I got B in my AS maths exam that includes pure maths 1 and stats 1.
    Should I resit my maths exam or keep B and continue to work hard on A2 maths to achieve A in total? If so then how much do I need to get A in total having B in AS of my A levels maths?
    My board is CIE.

    I'm not sure about the specific marks for that exam board, but if you think you can bring up your marks this year a lot then you go for it! Retaking one of the exams could be useful as it would take the pressure off getting enough for an A this year if you were to do better in it this year, but it all depends on how much time you have and how much effort you're prepared to put in.
