Why do you think you'll only get a C in German? It would depend on how high the C at AS was and how well you did in the A2 units. 3 examples: if you get 180/300, which is the lowest you could get for a C, you'd need full marks at A2 to get the 480/600 needed for an A. If you got 195/300, which is a mid-C, you'd need 285/300 at A2. If you got 209/300, which is 1 mark off a B, you'd need 271/300. So it is possible, but you'd need a very high A at A2, and considering A2 is supposed to be a lot harder than AS, you'd have to put a lot of work in to do that.
But if I, say, resat some of my AS modules in January of next year and got my grade up to a B and then did my A2 exams as normal in the summer ... am I likely to get an A if I work sufficiently hard enough?
It's not impossible with a couple of retakes, in my opinion.
Do you guys think it's possible to get A's at A2, having achieved 218,236 and 235 at AS????
The subjects are Communication Studies, AVCE ICT and History respectively.
It's possible to jump two grades up if you work very hard though. It depends on your UMS score, if it is a middle C or high C you would have a chance, while low C you still have a chance but not that big. I'm sure you can do it as you sound like you want to the grade A.
i went up from d to a in a latin module. that was after i got back a photocopy and saw how the examiner had simply missed out marks when counting up both ticks and the subtotals of all the sections.
