Most schools charge for retakes and the fee is usually the cost on the AQA website. Ask when you go back what the procedure is as you'll need to make sure the school enters you.

Yes you will probably have to pay. I retook Edexcel Geography and it was £27. I am sure that edexcel was the most expensive exam board. Talk to your teacher they will know.

Yes they almost certainly will as the college does not receive funding for resits in the same way it does for original exams. How much? You need to ask your college what they are charging because:

You Pay= Exam Enterance + College Administration Fee.

And the college will set the admin cost. But you could expect up to £60 most commonly 25-30 I believe. Not 100% on this.

Thats not too bad if its up to 30 quid, im glad its just the one exam im retaking I can imagine it could be really difficult for people retaking multiple exams.

There is not normally an admin fee as they are already putting you in for other exams in that subject with that board.

You will probably have to pay. The exam board fee is a bit under £30, your school might add on a bit for their extra admin etc but it is likely to total £19-£30.

The entry deadline is 21 February 2016, though your school is likely to want to get the entries sorted a decent while before half term so think of it as the end of January.

Yeah as soon as I wrote that I had a feeling that admin fee may just apply to private candidates.
