    Re-sit opportunities in AS and A level subjects where new qualifications were
    introduced in September 2015, will be available in the legacy qualifications in
    May/June 2017.

    Can anyone tell me what this means for people retaking the old spec?

    Means that you are allowed to resit an old spec-AS whilst the new style A Levels are being introduced, but probably only for a limited amount of time.

    It means you can do it in your college if they are willing and if you don't already have a C it should be free.
    If you don't have a C the college should be helping you get one but they may only offer the option to sit the new GCSE.
    If for any reason you need to take it privately anywhere else where you are not a student you will have to pay.
