    I sat C1 C2 M1 S1 for AS last year and got
    C1 = 80
    C2 = 78
    S1 = 82
    M1 = 68

    I wanted to just focus on C3 and C4 this year. I don't really want to resit modules as I want to do as few exams as possible. Should I resit some modules if I'm aiming for A*? Which modules should I resit?

    To achieve an A* you need a total 480 ums that includes 180 ums from C3+C4
    You don't need to resit anything to achieve that
    However, if you miss the A* you are also at risk of missing the A and might consider C1 and especially C2 resits to improve your A chances.

    Is coursework and comprehension easy marks for C3+C4. Looking at the UMS, if I get high fifties in the exam (assuming full marks in cwk and comp) I should get my 90 UMS. Is it too risky?

    Coursework certainly is straightforward to achieve high marks. Comprehension depends on you and your skills.
    Given your performance in AS I'd personally say its not certain you would achieve above 160 ums this year and therefore your A is at risk without any resits.
