    Hey, I'm resitting some exams in January, however I didn't get a letter stating when these exams will take place (a mix-up happened so I didn't get it). I'm resitting an AS course. I have checked the exam board's timetable and found out the date for that AS exam, but will my resit take place on the same day as everyone else's AS exam?

    For history it varies depending on what unit you are doing, for other subjects like maths there is a set date eg edexcel c1 14th, for internationals later that day. I'm sure by the time you get back you can quickly get a letter from your exams officer at the school (if you have one).

    On the last day of term, my teacher said something like "we will revise in the morning and do the exam in the afternoon" I dont know whether she was talking to the students about her subject or another one. I've checked on the official exam timetables for the dates of the AS for the AS students, but what I want to know is whether or not A2 students resitting AS do the exams at the same time as other AS students. Thanks

    Yes, Otherwise the AS students could clearly tell the A2 students what came up, both examination series are at the same time. Some schools organised AS resits for summer of A2, but I'm sure yours is in January as it's the last January.

    So student A fails economics AS level, resits at A2 is doing the exact same exam I'll be doing in 11days. Hope that helped.

    Yes it has helped a lot, although now my exams are all within 7 days . So I should just follow the timetables that are posted online? I'll probably phone my college up on monday just to make sure, but thanks.

    I'm resitting two exams, one in maths and the other in accounting. Both c1 exams and they are both taking place close to the end of the month, hopefully giving me more time to revise than others.

    I do edexcel so it's a tad different. Market failure is sexy... actually I dunno what I'm scared of. I haven't done many papers tbh need to do them though! I hear that you don't need to do many papers for unit 1 economics. Also helps to memorize the scheme.

    When yo going ham on FP1?

    By ham on you mean finish, I've got matrices and Proof by induction to cover then I'm done, so by February I should be done with FP1 (basics) then after february S2 (basics) then after march M1 (basics) and then I'll practice them all extremely hard.
    With only 3 exams in Jan I can't help feeling like I've got a lot of free time on my hands.
