    im in year 12 im trying to get a C in maths through the foundation paper at GCSE, I was wondering if I get the C, is it possible to be put in for the higher paper afterwards to get a B or A so I could get into uni? Do you have to pay to have another exam entry? do they even allow this?

    Yeah, but you'd have to wait till November, and I think you'd have to pay, not sure. But it would be the new curriculum, I believe, which is much harder.

    EDIT: I may be wrong about the new curriculum bit.

    You can re-sit in November (entry deadline 4 October). If your school won't lwet you then you can take it at any other exam centre willing to accept you.

    The exam board will charge about £30. The school may add on another fee to cover invigilation etc.

    Your school may impose restrictions on what they will pay for you to do (or let you do there) but you can re-sit GCSEs and A levels as many times as you want and at any age if you are prepared to pay the fees..

    Hmm, you should definitely try the higher paper in November then.

    Forgot to say, you can definitely take the current spec as a re-sit in November and Summer 2017.

    Hello, I was also wondering if you achieve a grade A in GCSE Mathematics if it is possible to resit in November 2016 as it is my final chance and try to achieve an A*. I feel I dropped too many marks to now achieve it

    Many thanks

    The grade you get does not affect your ability to re-sit. However, your school may require you to pay and may not let you take it there. You could re-sit at any exam centre (+any secondary school or college) willing to accept you as a candidate.
