They haven’t been confirmed as cancelled, just that they’re looking for alternatives

I took a gap year to improve a couple GCSEs for uni. I just hope something good can happen, my uni relies on the resits.

GCSE’s are cancelled but we have to wait for further guidance for private candidates. Last year they had exams for private candidates/resists who weren’t happy with their grade, so hopefully they have one this year 🤞🏽
