    Hi,
    GCSE results day i saw i got a C in my GCSE maths-which i was happy about a C was all i wanted..However 2 months into my AS levels i was looking at UNI's and courses and some of my courses required a B in GCSE math so i spoke to the head of maths at my school and asked to retake and they said it was fine.

    However,i do not think i got a B,or even a C..my question is will i be able to say when applying to uni's i got a C in GCSE maths or will i have to use my most recent grade to apply. Ive been going through a really bad time lately and this is just another thing thats stressing me out and adding to my anxiety.
    My GCSE exam board is Edexecel if that helps.

    Id really appreciate your ansers,thankyou.i have also emailed the teachers but have had no reply..it is half term though so its understandable.

    Your highest grade will override any lower grade you have obtained. Say you got a D in this exam, your C will be of importance regardless of when you took the exam.

    No problem at all, I've been in the same position myself and retook an exam and my highest grade overrode any grade lower than that exam.

    Does this apply to the november mocks? I retook my maths in the november 2015 and got a C. Although, I don't feel confident about my actual GCSE maths exam. So would my C that I got in November count?
