    I just want to know if it's just my school which makes us pay for them.
    It's quite unfair actually to make you pay for them.. especially when they cost around £20 for each module

    Yup. £12.50 here. They charge as an incentive to get it right the first time. And to cover some of the costs.

    Yeah we have to pay £12.50 for our resits - but if the school consider it their fault that we need to re-sit ( i.e most of the class as was the case in psychology - fancy giving us an r.e teacher to teach us psychology) then they will pay

    Not the first time, if u decide to resit the same module a second time then it's £15

    although once the deadline's gone past the fee increases by a crazy amount

    Yeah, we have to pay different amounts (£13-£20) depending on what the exam board charge. We used to get one free resit in each subject but they scrapped that idea this year.

    Price depends on how long you apply for the resit, there are different dates which accumulate different price (kinda like an airline-book early and its cheap etc).

    We get a free resit if we got below a C in that module, but anything that's C or higher you have to pay

    our school charged £16 per resit last year, this may have gone up this year though...
    i guess its a pretty good incentive to do well first time round, considering how much it can add up to if you take 3/4+ modules.

    Usually yes. Costs may be covered in some situations like if your school was at fault though. My whole class was given free re-sits when we didn't have a teacher and subs taught the wrong topic.
    It sucks, especially for people with less funds available, but at the same time there are costs associated and it is you wanting an extra chance. The price can be pretty crazy though.

    I paid £25 for each of the AS French exams I resat. It was for the following summer though, January exams don't exist anymore.
