my comments is in view of myself taking o level decades ago.
1) is B3 reflective of his abilities? if yes, then don't resit. if no, and he feel that he can do better, then go for it!
2) can he better utilise his time on his other subjects? If he is already doing very well for other subjects and CL2 is his weakness, he may want to better his CL2 grading to pull up overall grades. if he is not doing so well for other subjects, he may want to spend that time on other subjects if he is not interested to resit CL2.
3) is he motivated to retake.

in my time, those who get B3 and below are encouraged to resit because if you get A2 or A1, still better. those with A2 are not encouraged to resit because 1 grade point difference is not a great incentive.
