    1.When entering GCSE grades into UCAS do you put in your original grade as well as the improved grade after retaking or just the final grade?

    2. I have a 'B' in Mathematics and a 'B' in Chemistry they are minimums for medicine so is it worth retaking these two GCSEs or will Unis look down on GCSE retakes?

    3. If my school won't enter me for GCSE retakes where can I enter myself for cheap/for free in London?

    PS: I did Chem and Maths under edexcel should i change the exam board or stick with it if i decide to retake those GCSEs both were high B's so i should be able to get A*/A grades this time


    Thanks

    stick with the same exam boards otherwise you will have two chemistry grades. As long as you match the minimum requirements at GCSE your fine, A levels count more, so be sure to get them, Some uni's only like you getting the grades on first sitting, so dont piss about and start studying for each exam two or three months in advance. wish I did at AS, didnt take it seriously enough and now im restricted to my Uni choices and had to replan my life.

    Moral of the story. Dont count on retakes. Get it first time round.
