Post-16 resits

Students aged 16 to 19 who wish to continue into further education (FE), but who received a grade 4 lower (1 to 3 or U) in English and/or Maths must continue to study these subjects. This is necessary in order to secure funding for their chosen FE course.

  • Students who receive grade 3 must resit the relevant GCSE. They can resit in November 2018 or June 2019.
  • Students who receive grade 1,2 or U may instead choose an approved stepping stone subject, such as Functional Skills.
