I interpreted this as meaning that you couldn't do as you can at the moment, and enter pupils for the exam but not submit their coursework until later so exam could be resat with highest mark going forward (that "40%" rule). But it's only with the new GCSEs that we've done this - before, we entered yr 11 for the summer exams (Eng & Lit) and submitted their coursework for both in the May of that year. Still means you could do English Lang in Year 10 (exam and enter coursework) and Lit in Year 11. Just means that they couldn't resit individual modules. Not sure it stops them from resitting it ALL though - unit 1 (exam) and also resubmitting their unit 2 (S&L) and unit 3 (written controlled assessments) - either exactly as were or with some pieces improved on. More expensive, and not sure what would happen if they did worse the second time around... Any thoughts about this interpretation?
