I have failed my maths and English gcse some how but I want to do a resit quickly as possible and I will be going in to college as I didn't get the grades to do 6th form. I was wondering how I could do my resit in November. Is there fees?
How do I apply for a resit?

Ask the college or the exam officer. They should be able to arrange it for free. I have noticed some schools only put you in for June exams though, so best check and if they wont let you sit in November, then ask if you can pay the exam fee and sit there. get them on your side.

If they refuse then resits can be expensive maybe £100- £150 per GCSE.

The deadline for November entries is near the end of September soi it will wait until you get to college.

Exam boards don't deal directly with candidates. You have to find an exam centre (=any secondary school or college) willing to accept you as a private candidate. The simplest and cheapest option would be where you are at college so ask them first.

Does all colleges let new students that failed Maths and English in August 2018 do they give the students a resit in November as the exam boards already have dates to English and maths exam

They may let you re-sit with whichever board you started with - we do.

They won’t and if they do you should ask them to give you the correct exam board.
