The Texas Education Agency does not know the exact number of students eligible to retake
the exam; according to score summaries from the agency, there were about 430,000 failed exams, but the same student could have failed more than one.
If you are going to retake make sure you have assessed and done some personal reviewing.
Those who hold back and retake invariably benefit from the experience, said Ms Rowe.
SOUTHBRIDGE -- Last year, dozens of juniors at the middle-high school were not afforded their mandated right to twice retake the Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment Systems, first-year Superintendent Patricia Gardner said.
The superintendent pledged to stay on top of the issue, and that all juniors would have their two opportunities this year to retake MCAS.
A study of AQA's A level results last year showed that if retakes were ignored, the numbers of pupils gaining A* or A grades would fall from 24 per cent to 19.
Andrew Hall, chief executive of the AQA exam board whose A level the youngster took, told a conference the case was an example of the abuse of the retake system.
It also runs intensive A-level and GCSE retake
courses and Easter revision courses.
Amanpreet, of Orchard Crescent, Cheylesmore, Coventry, decided to do a year's intensive retake
course at Mander Portman Woodward, a fee-paying college in Edgbaston, Birmingham, specialising in GCSEs and A-levels, and is now waiting for her results.
WHEN this year's GCSE and A-Level exam results arrive, many students will have to face the dreaded reality that they haven't done as well as they might, and will need to retake exams in order to go onto the next level of education.
This can be a very expensive exercise for parents and it often means that the pupil has to spend another six months to a year to retake.
This, in combination with the system's image processing capabilities, means reduced retakes
and, in some instances, lower dosage.
With this technology, the number of retakes
is drastically lowered and patient dose can in many cases be reduced.
