    I have a GCSE tomorrow morning but I'm not going to be able to make it to the exam tomorrow. Is there a way I can reschedule it?

    It's not possible to reschedule exams; do you mind me asking why you can't make it? If you're in school on the day then they may be able to keep you in over lunch and you can sit it in the afternoon, or if it's a serious medical appointment you may be able to apply for extenuating circumstances, but it might be quite difficult with the GCSE being tomorrow.

    You could always resit in November if it's maths or another core subject? I'd say try your best to get there though to save yourself trouble :/

    If you're ill then you need to get to a doctor tomorrow and get a note written confirming that you are too ill to sit the exam, then show this to your Exam Co-ordinator who will attempt to resolve the situation.

    Hope this helps
