GCSE Maths resit legacy calculator paper ThursdayWatch
As far as retakes are concerned, I don't think you can retake the old spec anymore after this, although it may be worth getting someone else to check that.
Also, there's an awful lot of stigma surrounding the new exams, but really, there isn't too much difference- you just have to learn formulas and there's an extra calculator paper which appears to have more wordy questions. Honestly, it's not the end of the world if you have to retake on the new spec- it just means you might have to do a little more prep for it.
My advice is to just try and stay positive, don't dwell on the previous exams and focus on acing the next one. Sorry I can't be of more help.
This is the last chance to resit you would have to do the retake option in November for the new spec. Just try your best that's all i can say. I've got it on Thursday too and feel like i messed up paper 1. There's a very high chance grade boundaries will be low so just get some marks on paper 2. Good luck!
What paper are you sitting? Foundation or higher? There will be some topics guaranteed to come up, I'd focus on revising them the next day and a bit
I'm doing my A-levels currently in Y12, doing A-level English, Finance and ICT. If I do fail which is quite likely I reckon I'll have to do the new spec in May/June 2018, will it affect my A-levels (spending greater amount of time on GCSE Maths new spec and less time on A-levels although I'm not too worried) and what am worried about is applying for uni in Y13 2018 I shall most likely pass the new spec in summer 2018 however when applying for uni they will want to know my GCSE results and I still won't know my Maths result until August 2018.
