    Hi guys. I'm asking this for a friend who doesn't have an account on here, but she'd like to know, as she has to resit her maths GCSE next June (2017) as her college doesn't allow for November resits, whether or not this will be of the same specification as we studied for the maths exam in June (2016). Basically with the changes to GCSEs, we were on the old syllabus (Edexcel), but she's worried whether or not she will now have to learn the new specification for the new GCSEs for her resit next June...? Thank you .

    Probably the old spec, as June 2017 is the last resit opportunity for the old spec (Spec A). The 9-1 reforms won't effect resits within the November 2016 and June 2017 series.

    _gcx is correct, the resit will PROBABLY be the old specification but your friend should check with her college maths teacher.
