I think it's possible to retake the Maths, not sure about English, you'd have to ask someone.
What were your grades for them both?
Is there a particular reason you want to retake?
hey sorry for hijacking but i had a serious question and i don't know what to do. i did my gcses and i got my mark this summer, i got a grade D in English and i sent it to be remarked but unfortunately its still a D. i now go to college where they do IGCSE and i previously did GCSE LANG with WJEC. will i be allowed to just go to my high school and retake that paper in November or can i not do that. also will i be able to reuse my controlled assessment?
If you stick to the same exam board (i.e. WJEC) then you can carry forward the controlled assessment and just re-sit the exam. You can re-sit that exam anywhere that will let you - your current college or your old school or anywhere else. The entry deadline is 4 October for this November so I would get a move on in case the first place you try won't accept you. .
Things are changing now so i think you would have to resit the whole course for GCSE maths and english unfortunately.
The rules for all subjects are now that you don't have to re-take the course, you can carry forward any controlled assessment marks and just (pay to) re-sit the exams. However, you have to re-sit all the exams in a subject and those are the marks that will count for the new GCSE grade, even if you do worse than you did originally. (Unlike A level where you can re-sit as many units as you like and your best attempt in each one is always the one that counts.)
You are scaring me. Please can you link me to some official website that says this
