    Hi, apologies if this sounds like a stupid question.

    In June unfortunately I didn't do too well in my A level Biology exams. However, I did pass the practical endorsement on my certificate. I want to retake the 'theory'/'written' part of the A level at a different center, however I am unsure whether I need to complete the PE section again or if it stays with me as it is the same course.

    Please let me know guys. Thanks.

    You can carry the NEA forward. You just to need to make it clear when you ask them to enter you for the exams (it's a different entry code for most boards). Incidentally, the main entry deadline was yesterday so if you want to res-it this year you will have to pay late fees.

    Sorry if I sound thick, but I don’t understand what NEA stands for.
    Do you mean the deadline for normal exam entry 2018? That’s not much of a problem if thats the case.
    I just want to know whether it stays for further years on. I’m only considering retaking at this point.

    NEA stands for non-examined assessment

    thank you.
    You're welcome, a lot of people don't know what it stands for but know that it's coursework or controlled assessment.

    NEA=non-examination assessment. It's the name for the stuff in specifications that would previously have been called coursework (A levels, Projects and previous GCSEs) or controlled assessment (out-going GCSEs). In this case I meant the assessed practicals.

    Do you mean the deadline for normal exam entry 2018?
    Yes. The deadline at the exam board is always 21 Feb for the Summer exams (but centres will set earlier internal;deadlines).
