    Optimism my friend, you may have done brillaintly, and in which case a resit will not be necessary. Some schools won't let you resit if you have a C grade or better, unless of course you offer to pay yourself. First speak to your teacher, ask his/her opinion, and then if you decide to go for it, the exams officer will enter you for the required exams.

    I think go to a college or something and ask them whether you can sit the exam there as a private candidate. Goodluck x

    Will it even be necessary then? If you've already done your A-Levels surely you have an offer to study medicine. You may not even need to resit your English with a grade C, in fact your school may not let you with that grade. Before resitting maybe you should contact your prospective university, they may not require any more than a grade C in English Language.

    Anyway, whatever you do, good luck.

    If you are still at school, you could ask them if they will enter you for it. But if you did your GCSE's a couple of years ago, you would probably have to redo any coursework required for that sylabus. Also not all exam boards do November resit exams for all subjects, so its best to check that too.

    If you are private candidate, approach your local college. But you would need to have a coursework mark to carry forward.

    This is correct I think. With regard to coursework, I think you would be able to resubmit the same work, but it would need to marked again. If you resit within the 12 month period than the marks are just automatically carried forward I believe.
