    So my AS year could have gone a lot better when I ended with 4 Cs, which I know isn't the worst but at GCSEs I got 7A*s and 3As so it was a disappointment and a half :/
    Anyway this year im doing as many resits as I can to bring my grade up to at least 3 Bs and hopefully higher and I wanted to know if anyone knew anything about cancelling resits? I figured that I would sign myself up for all of them just to be sure and then cancel the ones that I didn't get a chance to cover fully when I got my statement of entry but does anyone have any more information on doing this?
    I'm pretty sure you can do it because my brother did the same two years ago but i wanted to just double check because I'm the kind of person that gets nervous and stressed out about these things :L

    You can certainly withdraw from a resist by informing your exams officer any time before the exam.
    Are you paying or is the school? If it's you, you probably won't get a refund. If it's the school, they are going to be unhappy with you.

    Stopped using TSR for a few months and never got the notification for your reply :/ Really sorry for replying so late but is there a deadline on when you can withdraw? And I'm paying for the resits myself

    there's is no deadline for when you can withdraw, the deadline just determines whether you get your money back. this late, you are well past the date for normal entries and your exam fees are lost.

    Ah right, is there a fee for not going to the exam?

    If your school has paid for the resit, they might ask you to cover the cost of not going to the exam, because obviously you will have wasted their money. This would be internal fee and has nothing to do with the exam board themselves; it would be up to your school how they want to deal with it, there is no official fine from the board for not turning up.

    If you paid yourself, you'll get a result of X for that exam, and your original mark will stand stand. You won't get your money back though.

    So since I paid for the resit myself, if I don't turn up for the resit (because I don't think I would do any better in that exam) I wouldn't have to pay for not going? I understand that I wouldn't get the initial money that I paid for the exam back.

    No, you wouldn't have to pay for not going. If I were you though, since you've already spent the money, I'd go to the exam anyway. If you don't want to revise for it, you might still get a better mark anyway depending on the questions, and it will only be a couple of hours lost. Who knows, you might get an extra couple of marks which could make all the difference in terms of your overall grade. You've got nothing to lose by going really.

    Good idea, I probably will go to all of my resits. Thanks for your help
