Retaking a core gcse year 10 exam? Watch

    • Thread Starter

    So basically I want to be getting mostly B's and a few A's but no C's in my final GCSE's. I have just finished year 10 and there for I have done all of my core science GCSE.

    But in my ISA I got a high C so they put me in foundation for my Physics January Exam (but I got full marks). After I took Bio and Chemistry exam's and in the Bio I did really well, but in the Chemistry I know I did terrible! So for Bio i'm expecting i'm going to get an A but for chemistry I think i'll get a D or maybe an E! If I got this I would get an C overall for my core science grade I assume (what I don't want) but since January exams have been taken away i'll have to retake this in the end of year 11 (when i'll have loads of exams as it is!) but i'll already be doing my Chemistry exam for my further science so it wont be that much more revision I believe.

    So in your opinion do you think I should retake to get a B or just stick with the C and take it with a pinch of salt? :confused:

    If you really want to, (and believe you can), I see no reason as to why you shouldn't, besides a B in science is a necessity if you wish to do relevant courses @ College. (Plus it looks good to employers).
