    Is it good or bad

    You can change on the exam date but if no one is sitting higher their may be a problem. Get your parents involved asap and I am assumining you must be in year 10?

    Hi all,
    I am having a mental breakdown!! I have just done my English iGCSE Language and I've totally messed it up! I did question 3, 1 and then I had 10 minutes to do number 2. So as you can imagine, question 2 will be absolutely terrible because I couldn't even think about what the quotes meant when I was writing them down. I don't think I'll get any marks on question 2. I always got B's in my mocks, and I think ive got a D in this one. My coursework is at a B, but that would only make it about a C overall. I really wanted a B, as that's what I need for Uni to do dentistry! If I do get only a C..or below..when would I resit it? And does the resit even get taken into account? Thanks guys - hope it went well for everyone else !
    Right now I'd try to forget it the exam is done and you'll get what you get you can't chang that so move on if you don't get a good enough grade you can always resit and most unit require a C not a B and your AS/A2 are much more important.

    I cant stress highly enough how you should stop sitting on the TSR and actually talk to your parents about this. Many higher apprenticeships ask for B it closes many doors if you get a C. Trust me I know and I got a B at literature....

    Most schools don't allow you to redo, if you got a C or above... Also the new year 10s have a completely new spec, therefore I don't think you will just be able to do it again in a few months.
