Hi, if I were to sit an a2 level exam in June 2016, but got a bad grade, would I be able to resit this exam in June 2017?

I will be taking a gap year from 2016/2017, so was wondering if I would be able to resit any exams? The exams I would want to resit are a2 level, and not all of them, just a few (1/2). Is this possible? And if so, how?

If anyone has done this, any help/info would be greatly appreciated via posts on the thread/inboxing me a PM.

Thanks!!

This is what i've been wondering too! Normally you can but i wasnt sure with all the changes to the syllabus. I asked my teacher and she said there should definitely be a chance to resit a few exams as an external student, but im not sure if it also depends on the demand of students wanting to retake too.

Email them asking them if resitting is possible, as far as I know only AQA is allowing last chance resits in 2017 for the legacy specs. You never know, though
