You mean the ones who get calculated grades? They can still choose to sit the exams.

It depends on whether they were attending lessons, in which case they should get a calculated grade like anyone else, or just self-teaching and taking the exam in which case it's unlikely anyone will be able to predict them a grade

As in they’ve attended all lessons since the start of the academic year so the teachers feel confident of giving them a grade.

However what I wanted to know was will the standardisation process treat them equally to students that are sitting the exam for the first time

There will effectively be 2 standardisation processes, one within the centre and one nationally. The centre has to combine the calculated results from all the different teachers/classes into a single rank order list and then, at a national level, the centre's submitted results will be considered alongside the centre's previous results, national distributions and prior performance of the cohort. The second one should be blind to whether a candidate is re-sitting or not but the first one may be more susceptible to favoritism of the Y11 students.
