    Hello, today i got my results from GCSE. The grades were alright but i was unhappy with the C that i got in Mathemactics (EDEXCEL). And this meant i couldn't do certain subjects in A Level e.g. Chemistry and Physics. My question is that will it be possible to retake Maths in November and hopefully by then i would get a B-A* and if that happens will i be able to pick Chemistry and Physics by that time in A Level. Thanks

    It is possible to retake in November but in all honesty, to pick up Chemistry and Physics that late may be a problem. There is a lot more stuff to learn at A-Level so it may be hard to catch up if you've missed a few months of teaching.

    You could try speaking to your Sixth Form/College to see if they'd let you start Chemistry/Physics on the condition that you retake Maths in November. it's not guaranteed they'll say yes, however.

    Thanks for the reply, is November the earliest date for retakes?
