Students taking legacy GCSEs this summer in English, English language and mathematics will have 2 re-sit opportunities - one in November 2016 and one in summer 2017.
This is one of the key outcomes from a recent Ofqual consultation which also announced that exam boards will offer a re-sit in or before summer 2018 for those taking GCSE Science or Additional Science in summer 2017.
The regulator will allow exam boards to choose whether to provide a single re-sit opportunity in all other legacy GCSE subjects, including GCSEs in Biology, Chemistry and Physics.
Students taking legacy AS and A Levels will have the opportunity to re-sit these qualifications after the final scheduled award, regardless of the subject. These re-sits will be in May or June of the following year.
There will be restrictions on who can take both the GCSE, AS and A Level re-sits. This is to ensure that only those students who need to access a re-sit take them and those that are expected to take a reformed GCSE, AS or A Level qualification do that instead.
The dates for last teaching, last exams and re-sits in legacy GCSEs, AS and A Levels have been updated to reflect the consultation outcome.
