    Hi everyone! I'm a year 10 student going into year 11 this September and i took my core science exams in May this year and i wasn't very pleased with the results so would i be able to retake them in year 11 and would those retakes be free?
    Thankyou to anyone and everyone who answers!! 😊

    It's up to your school if they wish to enter you again so you'll need to ask them about this

    I think you should ask your school about that. Usually, they would really suggest retaking them if you get below a grade C and if you really need the sciences for what you want to do in the future.

    Hope this helps

    So is it up to the school to enter us for retake? For example what if i really want to retake science could they still not put me on for retake if they wish to?

    I'm not sure b I think they should be able to let you retake it if your unhappy with it. A friend of mine failed most of her GCSEs and is going to retake them again at our school and she has to pay for them so I'm not sure if your school might help cover the cost since you haven't left yet but if you want to take them again you might have to pay for them. Also if your paying for them, they should let you do it. However I think the prices are different depending on the grade, I'm not sure tbh. I think it's best if you ask your school.

    It depends; you need to speak to your Head of Science. If you did badly because you didn't put enough work in they might need you to prove your attitude has changed before they re-enter you. I'm sure they'll consider it if you explain that you will need a higher grade for A-Level. At our school we don't charge students for re-sits if they're genuinely working hard and have the right attitude.

    I genuinely worked day in and day out but i also had family problems during that time and so after the exams i came out with a C and previously in class I've been getting As so i think it my problems just caught up to me but i just really need that grade A and hopefully they'll let me retake thankyou for taking the time to answer.😊

    In that case I'm sure the school will be happy to re-enter you. Good luck!
