    i resat my AS for free - however the only way to do this was to take an extra year and sit the lessons again, if you just want to resit one or two exams you have to pay

    i dont think so - it really depends on your college/school, probably best to see if she can talk to a careers advisor or somebody at college? or call them up to check

I left school, registered with my school as a private candidate and resat like that. lock your daughter in a room with nothing but revision materials for 8 hours a day from feb onwards and she'll get A's garunteed man ill buy you a pint if she doesn't

    It's buried deep within documents sent to schools about funding of 16-19 education. I've not seen it in any format easy for parents or students to understand.
    My understanding is that since the introduction of compulsory 16+ education there is no funding provided for students to resit the same qualifications unless there are strong extenuating circumstances such as very severe illness but there is for example if someone retakes year 12 with brand new subjects.
    Whether a school/college would or could accept an unfunded student I don't know.

    The general rule is that you get one free shot at it and, if you're not satisfied with the result, you have to pay. Some schools and colleges are happy to have people stay for longer than two years but this would require your daughter to attend lessons, do homework etc. like every other sixth form student. They aren't going to pay for her to resit as a private candidate at the end of the year and, given that other people have to do so, nor should they.

    Hope this helped.

    Thanks guys, she has been told there's no place for her in her old school but she can sit as a private student, I just think she would benefit having lessons , structure etc.
    I wish I had locked her in her room and taken books / art work away also removal of hormones might have helped.
    Is it true that universities do frown upon resitting a2's??

    you could ask about other colleges/schools if there is any local to you?
    if not working alone will work fine - shes had the lessons already she jsut needs to focus on the content!

    i resat my exams and unis didnt even ask about it! (i got accepted into 5 RG unis) unless she wants to do something like medicine then i dont think they look down on it really (its best to check with each unis admissions policy but most wont!)
