Although you’ll be studying the course online, when it comes to the exam you’ll need to sit it in person no matter which provider you choose.
There are two papers available for retaking GCSE Maths and you’ll need to choose which one you want to sit before you register for the exam.
You can choose to sit the Foundation tier exam where only Grades 1 to 5 (old G to low B) are available, or you can choose to sit the Higher tier exam where Grades 3 to 9 (old D to above A*) are available.
About six months before the exam date, you should book a place at an exam centre. Exam centres are usually schools or colleges that also have their own students sitting exams. You should also be prepared for what you'll need to take to your exam come the day!
If you're studying a Pearson Edexcel course, you can find exam centres near you using this search tool; however, this won’t cover every centre, so we recommend getting in touch with local schools and colleges to check if they accept private candidates. You should be aware that there’s a fee to sit the exam which you’ll pay directly to the exam centre. The exact cost of this will vary depending on which centre you chose.
Once you’ve resat your exam, all that’s left to do is to sit back and impatiently await your results!
While studying Maths can often make you feel uncertain, one thing is for sure - having the courage to retake your GCSE Maths is your first step to a brighter future, and resitting online has never been easier!
