AQA GCSE English Language Resit - Nov 2016Watch
I took my GCSEs in May-June, and I did OK in most of the exams. There's just one issue - I passed out in the middle of my Eng Lang exam.
I'd prepared for the exam: completed all C/As, completed S&L tasks etc. I got a B for the C/As and 5 for S&L.
Due to being absent for most of the paper, I was awarded a U for the paper and therefore have a big fat F overall on my results slip!
I'm not sure which board my college teaches, but they only offer a one-year course. I'd already prepared, and alongside three AS Levels I don't see how I could fit this in.
Can I ask them to enter me for the AQA paper in November?
That's really messed up that you got an F even though you passed out during an exam. Did you apply for mitigating circumstances - it really seems that you deserve one, rather than simply taking your raw mark.
Next June is the final time that you will be able to re-sit the old format GCSE, so if the one year course doesn't work out and you need another try in 2018 you will have to start right from the beginning with 100% exam. If you succeed in November (and your coursework must give you a good chance) you will not then need the distraction of taking that extra GCSE course for the rest of the year.
So i would be able to resit the exam only and carry my past coursework forward?
