    I'll be taking math (got a B) in november but im confused about core and additional science, will my sixth form let me resit those too? I got Bs in both but thats because my teacher didn't think i can do higher and refused to listen to me😐 i want to redo both and get at least an A so will my sixth form let me?
    Also, for math can i be entered for both AQA and Edexcel?and is aqa easier than edexcel?

    Most specialist sixth forms don't do resits in science GCSE. It might be possible if it's a sixth form attached to a school teaching GCSE or if it's a college offering GCSE options to their students. You will have to ask them.

    You are allowed to sit both aqa and Edexcel maths but most sixth forms don't offer a choice. You couldn't sit one at your sixth form and one privately elsewhere as they are scheduled at the same time. The syllabus is pretty much identical and there's no real difference in difficultly. Stick with the examiner whose questions you are already used to.

    Oh, thankyou. I guess that makes sense.
