    I am hoping to Retake both my english Gcse's and my boilogy and phsics gcses.
    I am aiming for a decent university so a B in english is compulsory for my option i achieved a C and a D first time although being predicted 2 b's. For my science i did double award and achieved an A in year 11 and B in year 10, is it possible to just retake the Biology and Physics part of my science gcse for both year 10 and 11.

    The reason why am confident that i pull my grade up for science as i am taking a level biology and mechanics so hopefully it should be easy to score high.
    So these retakes shouldn't affect my a level options too much beside it just being more of a pain to the the exams.

    Depends how you did the GCSEs. If they were modular i imagine you can just retake the ones which you got bad marks in.

    Regardless of your assessment of me I think you should just answer the question or leave the thread with your childish attitude.

    Whats the point? Are you trying to get into oxbridge or something? I imagine you can talk to your school to resit exams, but you might have to redo all of them due to the syllabus differences.

    I thought that for most unis it was minimum C in English and Maths. If not, I'm screwed; I only got a C because my school didn't submit any of my coursework!


    The best people to talk to are your school or college, they will know a lot more than us. Ever school is different regarding re-takes as well. Good luck!

    All he is saying is you cant expect to get a better grade if you spell like that in exams.
    Ucl is abit high to aim for tbh, people with staight A* at gcse get rejected, and if they have 10 people per place, you will just get a straight rejection im afraid, unless you have stunning statement.

    I am looking at Economics, hopefully with retakes I boost my 1 A* up to 4 A*. which would improve my chances of getting into a good university provided i get good A levels.

    Well good luck! I guess you should talk to your teachers about resitting exams.
