So I got a C in Maths.
More specifically I got a B in C1 a B in C2 and an E in M1 (defo resitting)

I have decided to resits M1 and C2 (On average I do better in C2 for some reason, I was 3 marks off an A for the AS)

Here are my UMS:
C1: 71
C2: 75
M1: 42

What percentage and UMS will I have to get across M1, D1, C2 and C3 for me to still get an A?

I know an A* is impossible due to the B in C1 but is an A completely off the table as well?

Not really sure how the grade percentage works like apparantly u have to get 90% across C3 and C4 to get an A*?

Thanks in advance

An A* is not impossible because C1 and C2 do not matter. To get an A*, you need at least 180 total across C3 and C4, plus the usual A-grade requirement of 480/600 (80%) across the entire qualification.

If you resit everything other than C1, you will need to average 82% in the 5 exams (C2, M1, D1, C3, C4) to get an A. The A* depends on you getting 90% in C3 and C4 as I mentioned earlier. To be honest, it may not really be worth resitting C2 unless you are scoring significantly higher in mocks.

So I don't even need to resit C2 to get an A or A* in maths?

No. If you only resit M1, you need an average of 84% in the four exams you'll do if you want an A (for the A*, this means 90%+ in C3 and C4 along with 77%+ in M1 and D1). Resitting C2 (or C1 if you prefer) can give you a little more wriggle room, but if you feel it would jeopardise your other exams, you don't have to do it.
