HELP! dont know which exam to resit!Watch
You can no longer simply resit one of the papers in order to boost your grade. (Maths is no longer modular, so they aren't called modules). For example, if you want to do the Mathematics GCSE with the Pearson Edexcel board (the most popular one). You enter for the qualification "GCSE (9-1) in Mathematics" whose exam code is "1MA1". You also have to decide if you want to do the foundation paper or the higher paper. If you do foundation, it's easier, but you can't get any higher than a 5 (the equivalent of a high C - the new 'good pass'. If you do Higher, it's harder, but you can get the higher grades (from 4-9). Higher numbers are higher grades. If you want to do Higher, you enter for the following papers: 1MA1/1H, 1MA1/2H, 1MA1/3H. If you want to do Foundation, you need to do: 1MA1/1F, 1MA1/2F, 1MA1/3F.
I'm trying to book an exam with a private examination centre as an external candidate, so I can get my C grade for GCSE maths. Problem is, I dont know which module or unit to take. And now after learning that the grade system changed, it makes all the more confusing than before.. I haven't done my GCSEs in 5+ years and I want to sit 1 maths exam to get a C (exams cost £99 each GCSE), however I'm not sure if its possible or not...
