    I am currently in year 12 but due to personal circumstances my family have had to relocate, meaning I have to move schools. However as I have not yet sat my AS exams my new school has said I will have to join in September and start again in year 12. Would this count as a resit? Would it affect my chances of getting into university, I wanted to study natural science at Cambridge.

    Why cant you carry on your current AS but just swap exam boards?

    Would be a waste of high UMS - since for Cambridge NS, unless you have 90%+ UMS your gonna have a tough time.

    Because the content is different to what I have learnt, but I don't have enough time to relearn the new content as the exams would be in a few weeks, the coursework is also different and would have to be submitted by the end of may

    You can do the AS exams of your current school and get them to 'convert' the subject to their appropriate exam board. Dependent on exam boards obviously but usually you can

    Just made a similar thread 40 mins ago, some have said we haven't sat any exams yet so we won't be under the resitting policy but whether it's accountable for Cambridge and medicine in my case.

    Hmm I don't think my new school will let me start there until September though, because they can't get funding for me to start in the middle of an AS. My exams would also start in 3 weeks, but I haven't been registered and I think it's too late to register for them now.

    Thanks, I guess the best thing I can do is contact the university directly and ask if I count as a resit

    You can register up until the day of the exam ,,, but I think you pay double

    Okay I just don't think I'm going to have enough time to start at my new school, register and finish learning the content for my 'current' board (because I left my old school a few weeks ago but we hadn't finished learning everything) before the exams in 3 weeks. I think that's why they said I should start in September
