Will this result drag me down? Watch
If I want a B at the end of A2 next year, is it strongly advisable to resit this module? I know that the modules will only get more difficult and I'd do better to get as many points as possible now. Should I resit or is it not worth the stress? Obviously I will speak to my teacher about it on Monday, but I just wanted to get your opinions too.

That's only me though, it's really up to you. Mostly you will be able to make it up with other exams and coursework (if you have it) as long as you do well so a C won't really drag you down as much as, say, the U I got in my politics module
Oh, and don't aim for B. Everyone should aim for an A in alll their subjects.
I'd say re-sit but probably talk to your teacher as you said as well.
As you said, the modules do get harder, but you have to remember that your maths will be improving along side it, your ability will not stay as it is now.
If your hoping for a B, you could not resit, but you will have to get Bs in your other modules. C1 is meant to be the easiest module, one where you can boost your UMS up, so resit at our school on this module is advised.
However, I would not resit in the summer, as you are going to have loads of exams, maths and not maths, to do. I would personally, wait untill your AS results and then see about resiting. Resitting in January next year would be better in my opinion, as you have fewer exams (hopefully ). And like i said your maths would have improved so you will probably find C1 easier second time round.
So maybe not resit it in the next lot of examinations but wait until the one after.
I did AS maths and we had all our exams in June and I got a B in C1 and then high D's in C2 and S1, so I got a C overall. But I if I would have done C1 in January, I don't think I would have got a B, so my overall would probably have been a D.
Oh yeah and if that was you first module defo aim for an A not a B, you will improve a lot over the next year.
