Just go. If you're not bothered about the exam, then what harm can it really do? (apart from waste an hour of your day, but that's not much really)

If you don't do well, then you keep your previous mark. If you do manage to do well, then great...

In my school nothing happens if you miss a resit, it's quite common. But you still get charged for it. It maybe depends on the school though.

If it was me I'd go, after all if you get a lower mark then you get to keep your higher one, so you've got nothing to lose. You're bound to remember some stuff from last year anyway.

if the exam isnt that necessary than i dont think theyl mind that much if you call in ill as long as you pay the £20 fee for exam.....i did it in Jan with a resit and noone bothered when i called in sick and explained its not a vital exam anyway...and thats at private school......however dad freaked when he had to pay £20 for no reason

Just go to the exam and do what you can in that resit. Remember the higher mark counts. If you miss it, you might be called in to do it by the examinations officer.

they cant cos if they did that id call my friends and get the answers and id defo do it
and you dont get how 100% my mark wil go down lol

"you'll end up with a U in this place. There's no harm in going, - you paid for it and it might be easy.

It's your own fault you didn't sort the books out in time. and yeah, the exams officer might well ring up."

im already 3of B so... i wont end up with a U :P or it wont matter

and yeah its my fault

You can't call your friends for the answers, as the exam is over. Even though you want to do it, you need to take it in january.

Ok then. I would still resit it and try to answer the stuff you know. I'm sure the notes you have will be still useful for your resit. Just try your best. As I said, your highest mark counts, so therefore the grade B will still remain if your resit grade is less than a grade B.

Just go to the exam! It's all very well you saying you only need 3 marks, but at the end of the day A2 is all about UMS, and it could well be that you end up just missing the grade you want/need if you don't take this resit.

Even if you don't improve your grade I think you should give it a go, who knows, you might do good and get a B - you dont know unless you try.

So why did you enter for a resit in the first place, especially if you were going to be so complacent about it lol
