    I gather there are two sessions for sitting the IGCSE examinations, may-june and october-november. Is it possible to sit the exams in either session, or is the latter only for retakes? Due to unforeseen circumstances it's going to be very difficult for me to sit exams in the coming may-june, is it possible to postpone them until later in the year?

    Not all exams are available in both seasons so you need to check to see what's available when, but you don't have to be re-sitting to take exams in November (it's the main exam season in some parts of the world). However, if you're taking exams in the UK it is likely to be harder/more expensive to find centres willing to enter you in November as their own candidates will mostly not be doing exams then.
