    A teacher at my school has told me that if we want to resit an exam, we have to apply by like, the 4th of February?

    So we have to base it upon whether we think we did well or not?

    Then of course, the price increases.. I was going to apply for a resit after my results if I need to.


    Was the teacher wrong or is it true?

    I thought it's a week after our january module results come back. Could be wrong though. Check with your exam officer.

    Well how does that even work?
    You don't even know your result.
    You get a certain deadline after March surely.

    You can sign in for a resit all the way up to the day before the exam, but it'll cost ya.

    The official awarding body deadline for normal entries is 21st March.

    However your school can set any internal deadline they want to. Discuss it with your exams officer.

    At my place we have to apply a week after we get our results (5th or 11th March - can't remember which), otherwise the exam boards bump the price up.

    Your exams officer/registry/office would be able to give you more correct info than your teacher.

    That's pretty stupid, I mean, who would want to pay for resits if they didn't even know if they wanted to do them?

    At my college it was resits for modules you haven't just re-sat, then ones you have just done are a week after the results, if that makes sense?
