    Get in touch with your Sixth Form college or school. They may require you to resit the entire year if your overall grades were that bad... Or if you take a gap year you could do the revision etc. yourself and just sign up to the exams in May/June. Definitely let them know what you're thinking though. Good luck!

    I've known people who basically home study throughout the year and then sign up to any local exams that are taking place in the following year. They would have to be resists for you though because as you said the spec will be different. Therefore I would advise you to contact your college as they will have the best knowledge! Loads of people have done this kind of thing before so it wouldn't be a hard process. Best of luck with it all.
