If you're talking about the Edexcel Science, then im almost certain you can resit them in June some time.

Yes, there is some time in June when you can re-sit ALL modules rather than just 3. I received a letter about re-sits for it today, so there is definitely one more chance to try and improve your marks!

i think the deadline for booking one of those was in March, but i'm not sure, ask, get your parents to write a note or something but if you can't, just do your best in additional

Have you got the results of all of your modules, or are there still some to take in June?

If there's a chance you might still get an OK grade, I can understand they might not want you to resit now and instead to wait and see if your other units can pull your grade up.

If you have got all of your results and they won't "let you resit", I think it's because the deadline for resits might have just about gone (I'm sure it's 4 working days after the results in January! ). You might still be able to enter, but you could end up paying a late entry fee of 2-3 times the standard fee...

I'm on the same boat I'm resitting

I am an a* in my additional science units

In core I got two b's for the exam and an a* for the coursework

Overall I got a b which is annoying I should have revised

Resitting it isn't going to be hard for u as my teacher was stressing to me the ease of the exams

Stop shouting.

The entry deadline is 21 Feb and you won't find many centres open durng half term so, if you really want to sit the exams, you may have to be prepared to pay late fees. You find a centre looking at the exam board website for advice and possible centres but ultimately by ringing round any secondary school or college locally and asking them fif they will let you re-sit. Very few do and even fewer will at this late stage. You also need to check that the exams won't clash with ones you are already taking at your main centre as this will make it impossible unless one of the centres is prepared to escort you to the other.
