    I know of people re sitting A2 exams however they are taking the course again, meaning theyve already got their grade in subject X however they are taking all the lessons again and the exams.

    Im not sure about after 2017. I would have thought that you still could.

    It is true that many A level specifications have already migrated to a newer style, with those that have not being rolled out from September 2017.

    However, to my knowledge, the legacy specifications' exams will have at least one resit opportunity for each module.

    For example, the WJEC A2 level maths specification is retiring in 2018 and will be replaced by the new A2 (AS will be replaced in 2017).

    Consider those who have already been entered for Core 4 before and failed in Summer 2017. They will have a resit opportunity in Summer 2018, but this paper will not be available to those who have not been entered for it before. ie: those following the new spec.

    Rest assured you won't really be disadvantaged by it.

    Correct - and I believe that C1 and C2 etc you will be able to as well owing to the fact that some people do all of maths in a single year, though I am not certain about the latter.

    It will be down to the exam board, not your school.

    What are you doing? AQA, WJEC, Edexcel, OCR?
