College welcomes free GCSE English re-sit
Students who have taken exams in GCSE English this summer are being offered the opportunity by the Government to re-sit their exam this November for free. Following the recent publicity surrounding GCSE English grading, the exams regulator, Ofqual, has announced that students will be given an opportunity to retake their exam and improve their grade as early as Autumn 2012.
Exeter College Deputy Principal, John Laramy, welcomes the decision: “Re-sitting exams can be costly, so we are pleased that students are being offered an opportunity to re-take their English exam this year for free, following the concern over marking by exam bodies. We would encourage any student who did not receive a C grade or above this summer to take advantage this free Government-funded re-sit.”
If you sat your GCSE English exam at Exeter College and received your results this summer and wish to take advantage of this opportunity, please contact the Exams Office on 01392 400477 or 400476, by Friday 28th September.
