    Hi guys,Some people in my class and friends were wondering if they could resit the AQA Old Spec paper for Biol 1/2/4/5(I know we havent done biol4/5 yet) next year.Or some people are wondering if they did really badly could they resit Biol1/2?

    I checked the timetable for 2017 and here it is.

    http://filestore.aqa.org.uk/admin/t_...-GCE-JUN17.PDF

    If u scroll down to page 10 u can see they put on Biol1 Biology 1(resit only), same goes for human biology for the people who do that.Does this mean in 2017 we will have a resit paper for the full bio AS and A2?Cuz some people said they wont make AS papers for old spec next year...Thanks all!!

    I really do hope its true it makes me pleased we get another shot at both As/A2s for a last time!
    Problem now is that we need to find a exam center or school that lets us do them

    I been doing them privately for the last 2 years since i didnt do good at school the AS year since i was messing about .They are kinda expensive, charging me £120 per unit and £450 per practical.I went to literally every school within my vicinity and talked with the exam officer so they would let me sit exams privately but they said no...I tried the grammer schools and some said yes and some said no.

    Best shot is at a grammer school, price can vary from £20 or £150(london area).U may have to travel couple of miles tho...

    god £450 for a practical is outrageous lol! And yes i think your right hopefully we can find a school that will take us. Would you happen to no what websites can help us search, and also do you no any areas in manchester or near there who are offering it?

    "The final assessment opportunity (first time entries) for these qualifications (H035, H435) will be summer 2016. Retake arrangements to be confirmed."

    on the OCR/Edexcel/Aqa websites.First time entries meaning AS in 2016? and A2 in 2017 then?So we should have a chance?
