Can I get 47+ still? (Further)

Basically I choked my Unit 3 SACs..

Here are my scores along with the cohort average
Unit 3 SAC 1: 84% (my score) vs 85% (cohort avg)
Unit 3 SAC 2: 70% (my score) vs 70% (cohort avg)

Unit 4 SAC 1: 98% (my score) vs 88% (cohort avg)
Unit 4 SAC 2: 97% (my score) vs 90% (cohort avg)

Therefore, Unit 3/4 Avg = 87%?

If I get close to 100% on both exams is it still possible to get high 40s? My cohort is quite strong as I go to a select entry school
I averaged an 85% in Business Management last year (more than slightly above average) and expected a 40 but i was lucky to get a 44 :)
Any hope??

Yeah absolutely. Take a 39+/40 or so and do well on exam 2, 47 is still achievable.
✌️just do what makes you happy ✌️

Very doable.
Aim to not drop any marks on Exam 1, and probably a maximum 2 or 3 marks in exam 2 or as brenden stated, dropping one mark on Exam 1 should be fine but you'll have to do very well in Exam 2.

May I ask for advice regarding further because I have done so many practice questions and exams, but the data and financial math seem to be my downfall everytime.

Also if you have any tips on software I would be very greatful.

Thank you so much (:

If you need any help with English I could be of use to you (:

Honestly, just try your best. I did around 7 practice exams for further but I NEVER got a perfect score on any of them. For each exam I had at least 1 or 2 errors. However, in the exam room, just keep a clear head and your brain won't fail you.

Same thing with software as well, while doing practice exams my answers seemed so different from the suggested solutions, but just place trust in your abilities.

1. which module/s do your errors mainly come from?
2. is it a time issue or are you having trouble understanding the content from the question/s?
3. a thing that I am doing is compiling the questions that I am getting wrong (the ones that aren't silly errors), and I am printing them as 'standards' and pasting them on my bound reference - make the 'standards' in each module so you don't have to skip through in the exam
4. another approach could be attempting the last questions of the modules (usually the harder ones) and returning to the first questions later
5. keep doing exams, including company exams
6. don't forget to return to your textbook for content clarifications, though your bound reference should include most of it

Thank you so much, I will try this (: yeah, it's just silly mistakes most of the time, which is a little reassuring, because I know what steps are needed to work out the question. But yeah, thanks (:
