    Hi I would like to resit my GCSE I've got 5 x Letts revise books. I'm confused because inside the book it gives me a list of examining boards. How do I know which module tests and terminal tests to do? There are all different syllabus numbers as well. Please can someone help me? Because I am studying this at home and not at college how do I apply to sit my exams?

    Thanks in advance

    You need to contact colleges in your area and ask if they will accept you as a private candidate to sit your exams there.

    Dont worry about resuts. They are a smart thing to do and youll soon catch up with other people.

    If you are going to do resits, then you should contact your school and in particular your teachers and the person who organised the exams. They can tell you which GCSE board you studied for. That way you will know the college are offering the correct paper. Please make sure you are clear which board you are studying for.

    If you then know that then google the relevant boards website and they probide lots of details including past papers which are very useful.

    If you are resitting then be sure you are confident enough to know what went wrong and consider whether you need to go to college to get further tuition or you cna maintain contact with any teacher who are willing to continue giving you support. marking an exam etc. Its importnat you get a good idea on hwo you can improve your effectiveness for the resits.

    How long is the gap from when you sat them? I was assuming it was an immediate resit or one year gap?

    If its some time since you left school, then you should make a plan of what you wnat to do. I'd suggest opening an account on the National Careers Service site and maybe go and see a careers adviser in town or at your local college so you cna run past them whether what you are doing makes sense or they have any advice.

    You should look at what exams you wnat to resit again and why plus what grades you got, why you performed as you did and how you feel you will improve. Its importnat to get to grips with this and be honest becayse if you arent then a few revision books might not be enough. Theres no need to panic, but its importnat you give yourself the best chance of preparing properly and thereby being able to perform your best.

    I cannot tell how confident you are in knowing what you are doing or how much support and advice might be helpful. If you need it then go and find it. Thats being strong at dealing with situations, which takes a bit more effort, but its for yourself.
