I want to ask a few questions about the November GCSE resits, alongside general questions about GCSEs since my parents have been fussing over them now that I'm in college.

1. Are the Resits for 2020 for just Maths and English?
2. Are the Resits mandatory even if you have passed most of your subjects (including the aforementioned)?
3. What impact does my GCSEs have on my chances to go to university, and are they really that important? (I've been getting a lot of mixed responses about this question from both my teachers from High School and friends/family who have gone to Uni.)

1. I think almost every subject is available for resits this year, but the deadline to enter has closed for some of them- I recommend looking up the board and exam , e.g. Edexcel iGCSE Physics, and checking it's still available.
2. resits are not mandatory especially if you passed maths and english
3. depends: what grades did you receive in your subjects?

let me know what grades you got (and which subject you want to go on to study) and I'll let you know what impact your grades will have
hope this helps! x

For GCSEs main thing is that you pass English language maths and science. Unis usually require around 7 GCSEs minimum. The main thing is that you pass your a levels well. If you do GCSEs aren’t so important. If you don’t GCSEs become important because unis will then take more notice of your GCSEs to see the kind of level of a student you are
