    1) Yes
    2) It depends on the exam board. I think it's usually £10-15
    3) For the majority of universities, it doesn't matter how many times you re-take as long as you have the required grades. However, I have heard of some having a ''re-take ban'', but I think that's only for the really competitive courses.

    The exam board charges around £30. The centre is likely to add on a charge for their admin and invigilation costs. Anything under £50 is a pretty good deal.
