    I'm not clever at all :rolleyes:

    Make sure you retake most of you AS's in the January session, as you don't want to do resits at the same time as A2's . I think resits are helpful for synoptic units, so don't think of them as bad things.

    Costs of resits - it depends which exam board you are with.

    OCR charge £10.75 per exam module. HOWEVER, not sure if this is the same across the country but in my college, if you improve your unit grade, you get your resit money back.

    Hope this helps.

    hey, don't worry about it, lots of my friends had lots of AS resits to do in January. Some have even taken the exam again this month.. Also, on uni applications, you don't put anything down for AS's anyway, unless you have dropped it at A2, then you'll need to cash the result in. Apart from that, you just state your predicted grades.

    Most of the units are available in Jan, but there might be some which aren't. It's very likely that unit 1 for every subject will be available.

    Don't worry, I had to do 21 exams this summer (half way now)

    Yeah I'm in A2

    Well the AS resits were easy, I just had to finish off something I should of done a long time ago :p:. For example, I got 81/100 for core 1 maths, so I just resat it this summer to improve upon it because A2 is harder. Darnit, I know I dropped 3 marks :mad:, grrrrr.... may have to resit it in january 2007, just joking.:p:

    Well they do vary a lot from centre to centre, I know a college in my town which charges £70 per unit :eek: what a complete joke.
    seriously?!?! that's ridiculous!!:eek: How can they possibly expect students to be able to afford that??

    OCR charge £10.75 per exam module. HOWEVER, not sure if this is the same across the country but in my college, if you improve your unit grade, you get your resit money back.
    Wish my 6th form did that...i'm gonna be so poor! :rolleyes:
