if you dont mind me asking what did you get? because it depends! if they are good enough to get you into sixth form, it should be fine in my opinion. you need to think about whether you can go through that whole revision process again.

You'll probably be asked to pay then - you can redo Language in November.

yeah you pay to resit :smile: - or you can choose to do it next summer if you want a bit of a break. however, i know that in my school they paid for your november resits however the summer ones i know u definitely have to pay. so i would say check with your school

They will ask you to pay but speak to someone early in term as they date of entries [if you want to do November] is quite early.

i am in going into year 13, but the courses i looked at most of them don't focus on GCSEs (the course and the unis i want to go to btw)

It's down to the school - there's a basic charge plus school decided admin charge. You can look up the basic cost on the exam board website.
