What are your UMS for each module? You need average 80 UMS overall or a total sum of 480 UMS across all modules to get an A

Let's assume you have the lowest ums possible for attained grades.
A is equivalent to 80ums
B - 70
C - 60
D - 50
E - 40

80+80+70+70+50+40 = 410ums
410 ums is a C
you say you have a B therefore you are between 420-479 ums

From the current information I would say retake s1, M1 and c3
They are easier than retaking c4.

If you want the a* then retake c4 as well and just get an average of 90ums across c3 and c4

good luck!

Are you sure you're on a B? Those add up to 414 UMS which is a C.

my paper says B, it says 426 but you're right it's been added up wrong does that mean that my grade is wrong?

retake m1 and s1, they are really easy just study for them. pure maths 3 is by far the hardest exam imo

Ok, I never had a C4 or C2, just P1 P3 M1 and S1, I did my AS and A level in one with CIE so I'm guessing it's a different system.
