Quickest way to resit GCSE (mature adult - no courses)Watch
Where can I go to pay some money and sit my GCSEs again. I'm 25 and I don't have time to sit on a lengthy 1 year course. I just want to sit the exams.
Eg edexcel here:
Some people choose to take igcse instead as they are entirely exam base. They tend to be offered in independent schools and private colleges.

1- The exams are in the summer assessment period. whatever happens, if you miss the enrolment date, you have to wait until next year for most schools.
2- Decide on what exam board you want to use for your retakes, this will affect what schools you can apply to for sitting them.
3- Sometimes spending money can guarantee a pass, some courses will keep tutoring you after your first attempt if you do not make a grade.
4- If you do not want to use a tutor, then the exam boards will usually have past papers and the answer sheets on their websites which you can download and practice with. There are also online resources like BBC Bitesize which are free.
5- Contact the local schools/colleges around you (dependent on if its GCSE or A-level) at around December time to give your self plenty of time to find somewhere that will take you in time for you to be registered as sitting the exam.
6- Bear in mind that it will cost you to just sit the exam and there is no standard charge. Private may charge a lot more to put off people coming in and messing up their league table results but still make some money from those who can afford it.
7- Ensure you know exactly what grade you need to achieve to prevent wasted time and money. Most are separated into higher and lower tiers so if you need a C or equivalent the lower one would normally be the one to take. Do check requirements especially if they use the old letter grading system and the subject has moved onto the new numerical grading system.
just accept that you've failed them. and if not then some colleges might be willing to offer you a chance to do some of the level 2 courses. I passed English language, English lit, science, *will hopefully pass maths*, food tech, and work skils. work skills is what I'm doing now and I don't think it's worth suffering for. I feel so embarrassed just looking at my certificates so I disposed of them. but listen yeh, don't give up. they keep saying to us aahhh you'll get an a or an a*, but in the end we get lower. we're just not that advanced. and most of these alevel people are showoffs, don't revise and claim they know everything there is to know already. they're happy but someone is still waiting for that one shot! so don't give up. you're lucky. I aint. I have one last shot before the government changes everything.
Let's do this.
My son has just failed all his GCSEs and has not idea what has gone wrong. He was predicted B/Cs and worked so hard with his revision etc. He has been to private school and he also had a home tutor for Maths who doubled up to cover Physics and Chemistry as well plus an English tutor. He studied every day especially over the Easter and had a home tutor in daily covering past papers and was sometimes getting A grades in Maths and Physics. He also did the extra clinics at school. His Maths paper was a 3 and English E and even his PE which was predicted B was F. He is totally confused with what has gone wrong as of course now cannot get into the A level courses he had wished for. Does anybody have any ideas?He's not as quite a few say on this site not bothered and certainly has put in the work. He says he didn't feel anxious and honestly felt all had gone well! Thank you from a really concerned Mum who's gutted for her son.
Get them remarked. All of them. I would go into the school and demand they let you remark them. My friend went through a very similar situation and ended up getting everything remarked (It will cost some money but it's worth a chance) even though it was against the tutors and schools wishes stating it would be a " waste of money " but he ended up getting his Cs from E in 2 GCSE subjects and that's the old GCSEs specification. Everyone now is getting their remarks requested. Make sure you do this as soon as possible. Please let us know what the result are after they come back and we can advise you if it doesn't go well.

College as GCSE English Language and GCSE Foundation Mathematics, but they said to get Essential Skills Wales at Level 2 both in Maths and English. But I cannot go onto the course.
Is there anyway else that would except me where grades are not an issue?
I will need to retake my Mathemathetics and Biology (GCSE or IGCSE) because I need better grades to get in for PGCE and I am a mature student. I would like to resit this in the summer. How do I go about this. I hope it is not too late to register for my exams? Thank you very much.
I want to do gcses Maths, English and Science but have never actually done them before. I have a place this September for course titled; 'English level two preparing for work'.I have no idea if that is an equivalent to a GCSES or not....can I even do GCSES?
Anyone can do GCSEs - you might find courses locally, or sign up for a distance learning course or just get the textbooks and teach yourself. You then have to find an exam centre willing to accept you as a private candidate and pay them to take the exams there. English and Maths are available in the November (entry deadline early October) and May/June (entry deadline February) though IGCSE is also an option and you can do some of these in January (entry deadline October) or the Summer (entry deadline March).
