    I'm currently in year 11. I completed my Edexcel Maths GCSE (Linear, 1ma0) in year 10 (last year). I got an A overall, with 147 marks which is a comfortable A (164 A*, 126 A).

    Our Maths teacher asked us in September 2012 if we wanted to resit in March 2013 (the exam was 2 weeks ago) and I said no, I was extremely happy with an A. But recently I've decided, there's going to be a resit in June for those who failed in November 2012 (that was open to lower sets), AND March 2013.

    Do you think my school will let me resit my A for an A* in June (as I'm quite confident I could get it, I'm doing reasonably well in FSMQ right now). The only reason they wouldn't let me would be because they're more focused on getting people to pass the maths gcse instead of get A*'s.

    If they don't let me, could I pay for the exam myself? How much would it cost to resit?

    Also, most importantly, WHEN IS THE SUBMISSIONS DEADLINE FOR THE JUNE EXAM? (it's on 11th and 14th of June).

    Cheers to anyone who can help!

    (P.s, most of my friendship group got A*s so I'm the odd one out, not being selfish here!)
    Retakes usually cost £15 & your school should allow you as I don't think they can legally stop you from retaking however they might be difficult about it as my school were saying before if someone gets an A they won't let them retake for an A* in maths
