Hello, I am due to resit one exam in the summer and therefore I am asking whether anyone has any information on how my grade will likely be determined in the case that exams are cancelled

Hi there.
Are you resitting as a private candidate? If so its likely you'll have to pay to do the final grade determining assessments at a college/ highschool so they can assess which grade is suitable for you.

It happened to some of my friends. I also resat however attended the college last year.

Wishing you all the best with your resit and future career plans. Glad your sticking at it Hope it pays off I hope!

Thanks for the response,

I am resitting with my sixth form, so I’d be sitting some form of assessment there? Did you have any reduced content in your exams?

Yes I hope so too as I was only 1/2 grades below my offer last year 😔

Are you enrolled as a student there i.e. taking lessons for your resit subject?

Yes I did. I resat a level chemistry and french and in both was told the topics which wont appear on the assessments.

No I’m not doing lessons, I’ve been told to expect a call in January so that I can sign to take the exam at the school in the summer.

Nice, did you get the outcome that you wanted if you don’t mind me asking? I’m resitting maths

Yes I did thankyou. I went from a D to an A* in chemistry and a B to an A in french to successfully get onto my desired course.

I hope this inspires you and helps you to not lose hope.
