    Hi, I sat my GCSE exams last year 2015, and I manged to pass maths but I am now wanting to resit maths again to get a higher grade by hopefully sitting the November paper.
    I was wondering if anyone knows the topics that will be in this paper as I am unsure as to if whether or not the spec changed or if the topics in paper 1 and 2 is different.
    p.s my exam board last year was edexcel Hier tier

    The spec will not change in November, however if you retake after November, it will be different.

    You can retake in November 2016 or in summer 2017 and the specification will be unchanged from the exams you took in 2015.
    If you wait until the summer be very careful to specify that you want to take the old specification and not the new one as BOTH are available. I don't know how many centres will offer it in the summer so aim for November if you can.
    Any revision website e.g. mathsgenie will have all of the topics you need to revise. Almost any topic can be on either paper, only a few topics absolutely require a calculator if the numbers are easy enough to work with.

    I don't think you are able to sit the November 2016 exam without having sat the June 2016 exam.

    Yes you can.
    Edexcel make the rules for resits clear here

    AQA and OCR follow the same Ofqual rules for exams in England.
