Resitting your GCSEs

There are numerous reasons why you might be exploring retaking your GCSEs. This might be to pursue a new career opportunity, or to explore higher levels of education. GCSEs provide a foundation for your academic and professional career, and we can support you to achieve your aspirations.


I achieved a grade 3/D in GCSE English and Maths. Do I have to retake?

Yes. If you have a grade 3 or below, or a D or below, then you will need a grade 4 (C grade) to pass and progress on to further levels of study, or employment. We offer functional skills study alternatives for those who do not wish to retake their Maths GCSE, but would like to have more confidence when it comes their numeracy skills.

For some students, we offer the opportunity for you to retake your GCSEs in Maths and/or English while studying a full-time vocational course. Contact your local Nacro Education Centre for more information.
