help with regards to results watch

    • Thread Starter

    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

    thankyou xx

    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...)

    retake, its normal to do badly in the yr12 jan exams..i got straight U's and got A's this time round

    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.
