    I am aware that each school/centre hands a financial penalty to late entries but does anyone know?

    Other boards are the same AFAIK, I know AQA is, just search for key dates [board name].

    i believe its 14 days before the exam but it depends on the exam board, i entered myself for another exam on the 20th April 2012, it had already passed the first deadline so i was told to pay double but exam boards can be nice like in my case i just paid the normal fee

    if they arent nice atm then its triple fees for each paper

    It can be as late as on the day of the exam I think. My friend was not entered for a resit which he thought he had been, so they entered him on the morning of the exam day. This was AQA other boards may be different.

    Well yeah technically they can make exceptions at any date before the exam, they are the board after all

    Need a good reason though usually.

    Tbh i wont mind paying extra aslong as im allowed to do it. I had already handed in my exam entry form within the deadline yet i realise now that i may need to repeat one I had previously sat. So i PRAY that im allowed
