    I don't know if it's the same for you but this is what my exam officer told me.

    I'm a private candidate and did have 5 exams over 3 dates before I changed modules and now they're all on different dates.

    I was told that their students did it a certain way round (the resit taken second) but as a private candidate I could choose which one I wanted to do first and if it was different to their students I would be kept separate from them.

    chances are the resit will be second.
    I had planned to do my resit second too, but now changed modules so now no clashes
