Are you in England, Wales or Northern Ireland? This will make a big difference in how the system works...

Moved to the A-levels forum.

CIE still has modular A-levels, right?
In that case, here's how it works: you sit your AS exams and you'll get however many raw marks. Your mark percentage gets converted into UMS - the UMS boundaries are always 80% for an A, 70 for a B, 60 for a C and so on. So it'll be scaled to account for differences in exam boards. There is no A* at AS-level. You get given a grade for each module of your subject that you sit and you may need to get a minimum mark in all modules to get a certain grade
The following year when you sit your A2, the total marks you get in that are added to the marks you got at AS-level. The resulting combination of your AS and A2 marks will give you your final overall grade at A-level. There is an A* at A2 and that is 90% UMS, but in all other respects it works the same way.

If you are using the reformed linear A-levels, it's very simple: AS is a separate qualification and has no effect on your final A-level result.

I personally don't think you could go from a C to an A. Grade boundaries for modular A-levels are quite high, and you'd probably need to get 100% or close to it. At least it's very easy to resit.
