    Okay so I'm being treated for suspected pelvic inflammatory disease I have all the symptoms, I've been in hospital (monday night overnight) and been in severe pain and suffered the all the side effects (especially nausea).

    I have an exam at 9am.

    I just spoke to a doctor on out of hours and she was shocked that I don't have a medical exemption certificate for the morning..

    It's an AS paper that I am resitting because I got a b before.

    If I don't go will I get my predicted grade?????

    Or will it be a U?

    Or, should I go and do badly (I know I will) and maybe get 2-3% special consideration

    SOMEONE HELP PLEASE I am panicking

    I'm pretty sure you won't get a B for not showing up, no.

    They can't just give you a grade without you sitting the exam.

    I know but I seriously feeling so I'll you have no idea. And my doctor wants me to have a medical exemption and not sit the exam. So what happens if you don't sit it?

    There is no information online whatsoever apart from vague you might get a mock grade

    Contact your school as soon as it opens to ask for the rules and regulations perhaps?

    what ever happens, best wishes!

    In certain circumstances they can give you your predicted grade, but considering its a retake and you still done well they may just take that mark. Get a mitigating circumstances form from your school and hand that in with hospital or gp letter stating the reason you could not attend, also you have some control over how the gp writes that letter, so you could ask him/her to say that the level of the pain was so intense that urgent medical attention was needed etc.. Also i THINK you have up to 14 days after to hand it in,although get it in asap

    I was resitting because it's dragging down my overall a level ums mark and I need to firmly secure an a. I am supposed to still be in hospital on Iv antibiotics but I discharged myself on Tuesday because I desperately needed to do this exam
