    Hey guys, I'm year 12 and I'm retaking my GCSE for Physics and Chemistry. I took double award so the 3 sciences were mixed to create an overall. My Chemistry and Physics grades were B and my Biology was D. I regret it so much no that I should've taken triple science. I'm gonna feel embarrassed because I am going to have to be there with the yr 11's to do my mocks. Is there anyone else that is resitting GCSE at year 12? How do you feel?

    Have you got all this sorted as the last chance to re-sit the specification you took is over the winter - or are you starting afresh with the new specifications and having to do the new controlled assessments?

    basically the same whole thing I did in year 11, I failed GCSE because I got CC overall, to achieve as for any science is a BB. My biology failed it, i'm so bad at it. Tomorrow, I'm going to be doing GCSE mocks, sitting beside the year 11's.

    are there many universities that accept AS chemistry/physics and A2 mathematics and ICT by the end of year 13? (for engineering or computer science)

    I'm still not quite sure I understand what's going on. Which exam board did you do last year? The Year 11s are doing different specifications to the ones you did and if you have switched to this you will have to learn slightly different stuff and do the whole GCSE, including the controlled assessment, and complete it in the summer. If you did Edexcel then you could carry forward the IAAs and take the last chance to sit the old spec exams in March, leaving you the summer to concentrate on your ASs.
