    Title is pretty self explanatory. My school pretty much pays for all resits.. which I rarely see anyone say on TSR. It's not even as if my school is an amazing school where nobody fails, the grades are awful but yet my school continuously pays.

    Anyone else?

    Whooaa that's a lot :/

    Yeah we have to pay ourselves too but it depends on the subject. Sciences are £15 ea basically so... yeah... which is the minimum I think for any resit at our school.

    Nope, my school pays. People do loads of resits too haha, because people don't tend to do that well...Maybe that's why they pay? To give people another chance to do better, hoping to make themselves look better as a school? I don't know.

    When I went to college, we had to pay there though. (£15 I think? That's what it was for English coursework anyway)

    Is your school a welsh school? I think maybe mine has a larger budget because of it?

    Nope, English. I think its because everyone does crap at our school at AS (four Us/Es was hardly uncommon...and I swear we lost half our year) and everyone wants to resit, but we're not an affluent area so maybe thats why they pay?

    Most people resit quite a few exams (my friend resat 3 exams and 2 pieces of coursework in Jan!) so it must actually cost them a lot...
