If this is a GCSE taken in England then you can't resit the missed paper but could resit all of the Exams in the subject in summer 2020. You would most likely have to pay to resit as a private candidate as the government only provides funding for maths and English language resits. You probably shouldn't bother and should focus your energy on working towards what you want to do in the future. Not having gcse in English literature is unlikely to be significant in your future.

actually IGCSE is not available in January at all. It's only available for the may/june session and the oct/nov session. And the lit IGCSE syllabus is fairly different from the lit GCSE syllabus. The credit is same though.

I'm not really qualified to say how hard it was since I'd not done maths for about three years beforehand and only had a month to prepare, but I will say it wasn't easy. Still, got the 5 unis require so that's what counts

What we got told if you dont do it this year, you'll have to retake it next year and get a fail this year. So if you're yr11 you'll have to either stay on at you're school or do it at college

Yeah many of my classmates got offers from top unis with 5/6 in gcses so that defo true you don't really need more unless its medicine.
Including me but I got 9 in main subjects thou, so maybe not the best example.

Exactly. Also I decided to go for the January exam rather than the summer one because that way if I missed the grade I needed I could resit now. Maths is the only GCSE I did so I guess the unis just needed an indication I can do basic maths. (Which I pretty much can't but hey)

Some of my friends have had clashes with other exams so they haven’t been able to do it so they have had to stop at an examiners/ invigilators house and do it the following day. However you might have to resist the entire course and do the final exams again in summer 2020 x
