    Biology and Chemistry edexcel. I failed them last year with the old syllabus. I'm taking a gap year out, going to also do exams in maths and Psychology and finish that off.

    Can I do the new spec for chem and biology edexcel next year?
    Can someone move from old to new spec?
    Thanks

    Yes, totally. You'll need to do the core practicals along with the Year 12/13s with your school. You will also need to learn the new spec content which may be completely different to the old spec. But yes, it's allowed.

    Yes and yes - but whether you would be funded to attend a college to do it is another matter.
