    So i was doing the old spec (2008) and was told 2017 will be the last time to resit these exams. i got into a uni with my current grades but was wondering if i didn't like the uni by november and decide to drop out how would i be able to resit my exams. As i went to a sixth form there current year 13's are studying the new spec of subjects meaning i wouldn't be able to attend the lessons so how would i be able to resit my exams?

    1) Love the name.

    2) You could resit at a local college, if you don't mind potentially having to take every element of the course again. However, I would suggest that you finish your degree first, respec, and then do whatever else you were planning on.
Do you agree with the proposed ban on plastic straws and cotton buds?
