currently studying as levels and got results back for exam i took just after christmas and was my business first module exam (first one out of 3)
quite a clever student without sounding too stuck up and etc and got a C which i know isnt bad at all but was a little disappointed
was a high C only 2 marks off a B i think
just not sure whether to retake
as i want to go to uni, decent unis, looking at newcastle, manchester, leeds etc
not sure whether i should retake
or try and pull the grade up with my next two modules
what would everyone do in my situation
would reallly genuinely appreciate your opinion

Retake... you can only do better the second time. (I mean, of course you could do worse the second time, but your best result sticks...)

Retaking is probably a good idea.
Your grade is likely to be much higher in June, as you will have had much longer to practice for the papers and your writing technique will have improved.
Most people go up a grade in retakes, or at least stay about the same.

im guessing your in yr 12, so i'd just wait to see what you get in june,then resit the module with the lowest grade in january next year. i wouldn't bother doing resits this june.
