Retaking year 11 watch

    • Thread Starter

    Has anyone done so badly in their GCSE's that they r thinking bout redoing year 11. Cos i am and wanted to know how it would all work out and stuff. Like would i have to redo all my courseworks and how much i have to pay and stuff.

    I wouldn't retake all of them, just a few of the vital ones that are relevant to your future such as Maths and English as well as subjects needed for your a-levels. What did you get? If you don't want to say what you got, then that's fine but if you are happy to do so, it would help because your results may not be as bad as you think.

    i cud have done so much better but i didnt work at all for the 2 years so my courseworks r all shocking and i spent too much time on my psp rather than revising in june, so i messed everything up and now regretting it. plus most unis want B at english lang

    i REALLY would not retake the WHOLE of yr 11 based on those results, people who retake years generally get G's U's and X's, your results in comparison are very VERY respectable

    I'm not retaking my whole of Yr 11.

    I'm just going to do BTEC in Business which leads me on to A levels Business. Sure it means another year, but I don't mind doing it. I'm retaking Maths but not sure about Science =/
