    I've had about 1-2 hour sleep for the last 2 days and today I overslept one of my AS unit 2 exams. I just couldn't hear my phone alarm. What should I do? Should I send an apology to my personal tutor? Or should I just keep it in silence cos? I mean, I'll still be able to write it in January, but I have no idea of what to do and what to say atm... I don't think that saying that I've overslept will sound appropriate in my situation. HELP! I'm ****ed....

    Unless he was bed ridden, then this is no excuse.

    Even then, he would have to have had to call up the school, and submit a doctor's note confirming his illness.

    OP - you're screwed.

    1) If you're extremely ill, why didn't you notify the school in ANY MEANS NECESSARY
    2) If someone you know died, who?

    Lol i'm joking......Well just try to be honest i mean honesty is the best policy or you could just avoid them at any cost until you can think of a good enough excuse

    To be honest, you're just going to need to resit. I'm guessing it wasn't a speaking exam?

    Alternatively you could find out if there's a very similar module on another exam board and try and get entered for that (after confirming it's transferable). Be warned though - that'd be expensive.

    Edit: Is the neg because everyone else wants me to be taking the piss too?

    1. Too ill to call in
    2. Your cat/imaginary friend/who cares? Be inventive.
    3. Your transport was delayed
    4. You got your leg stuck in a drain
    5. You went into your clothes cupboard to get clothes, fell in and got lost in Narnia.

    Where there's a will, there's a way.

    you're only in year 12 so it's not the end of the world. Just explain what happened and re sit it in January, the school won't do anything serious, people miss/fail exams all the time

    ...you have to do something severe to get a doctor's note... Being "ill" won't cut it. Try breaking your hand (jk), but regardless... I'm sorry mate, you'll get a 'special' grade known as 'X'.

    ...what subject was it?
