    Because the exam boards are clever and work it out.

    Also it shows what you can do, which is what exams are for.

    So if you get 60 first then 80, you'll get the 80. If you get 60 first and then 40 next time, you'll keep the 60.

    Some exam boards you can repeat them over and over, others you can only do them like twice. Not sure which exam boards.... i believe edexcel you are only allowed to take it twice?

    I thought all exam boards were the same and previously you could only take an exam 3 times, so in other words you were allowed to resit the same exam twice but you had to take your third result even if it was the lowest, but now they've changed the rules and you can resit any exam as many times as you want?

    It just gives the grade. I resat the whole of my history As - I got Bs the first time - and it just comes up as the new scores.
