If you have 2 As in your January module exams, would you resit?
I'm thinking of resiting, so I could collect as much UMS points as possible for the easier modules, and work towards that A*
But I heard that it shows on your UCAS form that you resat.
I got 88% in Maths C1 and 80% in Economics Unit 1.
Is there point doing a resit?
Depends how bad, and how much you are willing to work for that A*
Also on what you plan to apply for and to what uni
Well done on your A's though
hmmm.. just think about the extra workload? if u want to re-sit.. try and re-sit with similar modules to reduce the revision so your new modules dont suffer.
I thought you couldn't get an a* if you resat a module anyways?? So If your doing it for the a* IT might be a little pointless, if what I just said is true. If its not then I'd wait until you get some more module results and see if you need to resit an easier modules to boost up other harder modules.
i am resitting d1 - 79 only one mark off an A although i will still get an A in maths
want all 90%'s for when i apply to camb
I resat a Core 1 at 84% and Decision 1 at 80% because I knew they would be easy modules to bump my UMS for the MUCH harder modules of Core 3/4. I think it's wise you resit them too, after all it's only £15 or so
I know that, for mathematics, Imperial will reject you if you resit, so it is worth check the uni's website.
Don't bother resitting until next year if you really need to.
It depends really on what you want and also on your university.
I got an A in C2 but nonetheless my teacher wants me to resit so I can be more relaxed when it comes to M1 and M2. Similarly for chemistry, I no longer need it and couldn't care less about my AS module grades, though am going to resit so I can have a personal feeling of accomplishment even though I don't need it at all.
I was told that cambridge are put off by resits. As Ruth says, you have to fill out the SAQ, so they know all your module results. As there's no point trying to cheat them, I know someone who got asked to bring their module results to the interview.
My advice would be that unless you really need to, don't resit. It's more work, and as I said, Cambridge doesn't seem to like it so much. Although I didn't have to worry about the A*. I suppose if you need to resit to get an A*, then it's probably worth it. There's not much point in applying to Cambridge if you aren't going to get the grades.
Hey, at cambridge do they look at the percentage according to ur raw score or UMS mark?
