Is that just for the exams (in Summer 2021)?
Is it IGCSE or GCSE Combined Science?

It is probably a reasonable price.

Science in November is only for people who were entered in the Summer, and they shouldn't be charging you again. GCSE Sciences are also not normally an option for private candidates (because the centre has to sign to say you have completed the practicals) but the rules about practicals have been weakened this year because of Covid.

That aside, £150 is not unusual for the fee to take a GCSE,

I got 33 in combined science and a 4 in maths however I need at least 7 in these subject to get A levels(further maths,computer science, IT). I revised everything during the lockdown period, so I'm feeling confident that I can get that grades or more than than. and I chose to do in November because I don't want to waste another year till summer.

Aim for 7s but most colleges in my experience colleges/ sixth forms only want 6s. However the odd college/ sixth form will want a 7 in maths to do a level maths which I think is a bit much but that’s just my opinion. Try to get 66 in your combined science which is defo achievable and a 7 in maths you should be fine.
