Need an A for physics but only get a B. I send my paper for remark as I only need 6 more marks. However I think I should prepare for resitting in summer. Can I ask if we choose to resit in summer, do we need to resit all the subjects or just the one you did not achieve thr grade you need?

Do you guys think the exams will be cancelled because of the new covidv19 strain and the rise in cases. I really hope not otherwise I have to take a second gap year and there's no way I will apply with the grades I got from my teachers. They should make it like the autumn exams but in May/June so people who want to do their exams can do them. I'm so stressed out and my bloody tutor has taken 2 months and still not finished my reference.

I’m worried about that too and my tutor still hasn’t done my reference either 😬.... i can’t stop being worried until I submit UCAS before the deadline. I also can’t stop worrying about whether exams will go ahead and whether I’ll get a place from my chosen uni, whether I'll be at uni next year

Don't get your hopes up about the review of marking. Picking up 6 marks in Physics is incredibly rare.

Each subject is separate and so you don't have to redo them all. However, in England, where A levels are linear, you do have to re-sit all the exams for a subject (but you can carry forward marks for any NEA or a pass in the assessed practicals.)

Thanks for that. I got A* in both maths and further maths so I don't want to redo the exams for maths and FM again.

Centres have to get the entries to the exam boards by 21 February. Centres will set their own deadlines earlier than that to make sure they have time to check everything and submit in time - the price doubles if they're a day late.
