Ofqual announces GCSE English and maths legacy resits

14 December 2017

The Association of Colleges responds as Ofqual confirms today that exam boards must provide two resit opportunities for legacy English, English language and mathematics GCSEs; one in November 2016 and one in summer 2017 for anyone over 16 years-old. Catherine Sezen, 14-19 and Curriculum, Senior Policy Manager at the Association of Colleges, said: “Today’s decision from Ofqual will have a positive impact on the future of the thousands of students for whom colleges offer the opportunity to take GCSE English and maths resits. It will allow them to resit the same exam syllabus they studied for at school. “We have campaigned to ensure these resit opportunities are available and the impact of Ofqual’s decision cannot be underestimated. This will be welcomed by colleges as they want to offer the best possible chance for their students to succeed.”
