    this is probabaly asked so many times, but can anyone tell me how many times A Level units can be resat, i know for most exam boards its as many times as you like provided the shelf life of the specification still exists i.e. specification still exists and is running.

    But for the sciences , mainly physics, i just read somewhere which i think is out of date and says u can resit it only once! i am resiting phyics AS, i've been entered for them and have sat them so this means it is open for me to do again,.... right! i reeeeally need confimation. AQA Board Physics A! Thanks

    As far as I know, up until recent years you could only resit a module a certain maximum number of times, but if I remember rightly this rule changed within the last couple of years so you can now resit a module an unlimited number of times, provided the specification is still being used as you mentioned in your post. I hope that helps. The best thing would be to ask a teacher at your school/college though, as they'll know best.
