    Lying won’t work as I know a few people who did that and failed completely trying to do so. They check by looking at your certificates against what you put. Lying will make it worse.

    I would ask them if you could pay for the retake, I believe you have to if you do so early. For example I retook my English in November, I paid about £70 to do it early instead of having to waste the year. The same would apply for maths or at least be similar. Maybe a private tutor would help your case to the sixth form.

    I don’t know what your parents think or if you want to involve them but having one of them with you to back you up or guarantee payment will help.
    Can i go to this Sixth Form and ask them to retake it,i will happily cover the cost ? But the pressure will be huge on me,what happens if i fail again ? Other Students have managed to be able to do retakes for free,it seems unfair but i deserve it.

    Only the sixth form can answer that. Ask them.

    Yes, go to the sixth form and ask them if you can retake it there. If they so no tell them you will pay for it. There’s no point saying if I fail again, try saying how about what if I pass? Just don’t think about passing at the moment, think about getting the resit. If you panic you won’t pass, if your calm you will.

    I have e-mailed someone at the Sixth Form to see if it is possible.However judging by the Email he sent me originally,why wouldn't he have said 'retake your maths here and if you pass you can get a place ' instead he said,'we wish you luck for your future and hope you find a alternative college' dosent sound like they want me even if i pass.

    i swear most colleges let you do a lv 2 course if you fail maths and let u retake it

    is this a private school or grammar school you're going to because they have tighter entry requirements ?

    I think the problem is i am a external student applying meaning i am not a piority compared to students who went to the same secondary school and is applying for tge Sixth Form.They have not offered me retakes,i dont know what to do.The Man hasnt replied yet on Email, I would pay to resit it so it shouldnt be a problem.Providing i pass,they should offer me a course starting September 2018.

    A fair proportion of comps/academies have sixth forms.

    Good enough,Maths is the only one i failed.I have also e-mailed my former exams officer,how much does a Gcse Maths even cost ? If my old school and Sixth Form i want to go to say No,i dont know what the hell to do.Why is it so hard to resit a Exam,even if i say i will cover the costs.Why does Life have to be soo hard man.

    It's not much as a normal student but probably a couple of hundred as an external candidate.

    Ok firstly cut the attitude because you're the one in the precarious position here , i don't live in london so i didn't know that normal state schools had their own sixth form. I would get one of your parents to discuss your options with the head of sixth form at that place so arrange a meeting with your parents and the head of sixth form to discuss what to do

    I understand what you say but if it’s your dream sixth form don’t give up. Just go for it. As cringe as it sounds you do only live life once so do make the most of it.
