Hi all,

I took my Maths GCSE all the way back in 2008 and obtained a C through not revising and being stupid and now I am at that stage where I need a B at the minimum for a grad scheme I want to apply for..

Would it be possible for me to take it in November 2014?

I know about the new rules, however as I already have taken the qualification, does that render me as eligible to take the GCSE in November? As there is no way that I could revise in time for May/June 14 or whenever it is due to University assignments etc.

Please advise me. Thanks in advance.

I think so. As you are retaking it shouldn't be a problem.

Hope this helps

Doesn't this mean that the OP would have to sit the exams in Summer 2014 in order to be eligible as a 'retake' student to then sit them in November 2014? I think that the OP is no longer classed as a retake student as any GCSE maths exams sat before the 2014 Summer session was the outdated qualification.

To be honest...because you have already taken your Gcse in maths and gotten a qualification in 2008 you may be able to retake in a college as long as you pay if you are over 18 but if you are not you can still retake.

I think the changes are to early entry GCSEs. OP would still be classed as retaking as an exam has already been taken, regardless of when.
