    im in year 11 right now and during year 10 i did my gcse biology exam, i got the results A A C A* which gave me an overall B. My mum wants me to resit the exams again which will be with the rest of my gcses. I do possibly want to go into science in future so do i retake them or not? and if so how do i tell someone i want to?

    Anyway a B is sufficient for everything even for most schools.
    Since you've got a B it is very unlikely that your teachers will let you resit it.However if you speak to your exam officer you can arrange to sit the exam at your school privately.which would mean you'd have to pay .

    Ask the exam officer at your school or contact the exam board. It might be too late but see if you can retake just the module, which would make it easier. Its really your A levels that matter.

    A 'B' for Biology is acceptable for A-Level Science, especially if you get As or A*s for your Chemistry and Physics in the summer. If you really want to re-sit you would need to speak to your Head of Science, who may refuse anyway since you already have a B. Even if you offer to pay they might still say no as they would have to redo the coursework with you and mark it. If I were you I would probably concentrate on Chemistry and Physics to make sure I got the best grades possible.

    It isn't possible to carry forward modules. A re-sit would involve all three exams and coursework.

    No, you can't. The coursework has already been cashed-in. The OP has been entered and achieved a grade - the coursework cannot be carried forward.
