I failed my gcse legacy resit this summer, does this mean I have to do the new GCSE maths spec? Also, if I do would I have to put numbers because my old gcse will be in letters

Unfortunately yes, you have to do the new specification and you can't forward old spec marks. Who knows they might be kind and offer one last resit, who knows. Ask your teachers though, I messed up maths aswell, hopefully somehow get a B

I'm in the same boat, just I didn't get a C but a D. Don't want to go learn all the new content for the new maths GCSEs but I'm hearing that the grade boundaries are quite low..

GUYS HOW MANY OF YOU WOULD Be interested in A RESIT IN OLD SPEC gcse / alevels. I don’t think it was fair for people to do a levels and GCSE finally opportunity at the same time because this would mean you have to do many exams and I know people who did both this summer. What should’ve been done is one year final chances for a level then the next for GCSE so it avoids having many exams . I have the chance to present this, and my personal experience to people. I would like to show that there are still people out there and agree with my suggestion.

Move on. It is nothing to do with Edexcel - it was decided by OFQUAL so there is no point talking to Edexcel about it. There were 2 re-sit opportunities for GCSE Maths And English Language and one for all the A level exams so there is zero chance they are going to change their minds now when the final timetables have been available for next Summer for 5 months.

I’m exactly the same , I have ended up getting a maths tutor coming to my home every 2 weeks to help me with the new spec. It’s definitely helping though so I recommend maybe finding a maths tutor if you are struggling. I can’t concentrate as much in college as the people in my class just mess around and I don’t get much help. Highly recommend a maths tutor though.

Final thing, there well might be a 0% chance, but I’m going to keep trying till there is no more avenues to explore. I’m not going to give up easily. I’m going to try my best for myself and others.

By all means go ahead but you really are flogging a dead horse. The planning cycle for exams is far longer than you imagine - it was announced about 3 years ago that last Summer would be the last chance for these specs and the re-sits have been offered on the same basis as for the 15 years I can remember. For A levels there is always one last chance to re-sit and for GCSEs there is a chance to re-sit Maths and English and Science but the other subjects don't have a re-sit opportunity at all. On this occasion there have been 2 re-sit chances for Maths and English so it's been more accommodating than usual.
