    It depends on the rules for the particular controlled assessments, whether there is an alternative one to do and what you school says e.g. you can't re-do that Science ISA, but your school may let you do one for a different science as only 1 has to be submitted out of the 3 Sceiences f you are just doing GCSE Science. However, there may be no time to do this so the school may say no. For History it may well be a no, as far as I know there isn't a choice and you only have a limited time to do them in.

    Resit them! If you want A* then you should aim to get A* in all the units of the particular course.D
    Don't put yourself at risk as controlled assessments can bring grades down or up no matter how low percentage they may account for.

    - I managed to get a grade A in Geography overall from getting A* in the controlled assessment but only B's in the actual exam. The controlled assessment only accounted for 25% aswell.
