Answered on

26 January 2015

The information requested is not held by the Department for Education. Each Awarding Organisation publishes details of their fees for re-sits [1].

In addition to Awarding Organisations fees, exam centres can apply their own administration costs to sit the exam at their centre. These costs can vary from centre to centre.
