Exams: IGCSE Retake and Remarking

Candidates sometimes don’t get the results that they hoped for. If this happens to you, try not to worry too much. Your results may still still open up many different exciting opportunities for your further education and future career. 

However, in some cases, you may want to consider re-marking or retakes – for example, if you or your teacher predicted a much higher grade. 

Enquiry About Results (EAR)

If you think your exam results are incorrect you can request a re-mark.

Retake an exam

If you or your teachers think that you could achieve better grades, you can choose to re-take your exam. 

What is a retake?

An exam counts as a retake if you have sat the same syllabus in the past year.
