GCSE Resits

Many students will be looking at their options for GCSE resits after the GCSE results day of 2022. This is for the people who fell short and have not achieved a level 4 in GCSE maths and English. Taking a resit is usually the first thing that comes to mind for these students and we are here to outline the options that they may have, including the alternative functional skills level 2 qualification.


We have a great track record here at Ilkley Tuition when it comes to the pass rates of our learners. This results in us not seeing many existing students take resits. The people who get in touch with us in regards to resits are usually those who have failed their GCSE exams and are in need of advice on how to move forward and what their best options are. For most, the functional skills maths and English qualification is the preferred choice. This is because it will get you into most Universities and is accepted by employers around the country as a GCSE equivalent qualification. Perfect for the majority of courses but some learners will require higher than a level 4 for their chosen career paths such as nursing. We provide as much support as we can through tuition and study resources, but we can also assist in the booking process as well. Through the links below you can book your GCSE maths and English resits.



There are many advantages that you should be aware of when considering taking the functional skills level 2 exams over the GCSE retakes. Mainly that you can take the exam whenever you want all year round and you can do it from your own home. With the aim that you can set aside enough time for studying while not losing anything from your daily life. Results also come back much quicker than the GCSE resits, coming back in 2 weeks rather than 2 months. Not forgetting that the content to study and learn is not as much as well.


We provide support for all learners and if you have any questions on your mind in regards to our service then please get in touch as soon as possible.
