    Hey guys today/last night ive been constantly puking and I don't think it's possible for me to do my spanish AQA exam. If I miss the exam tomorrow and stay home instead, will i be given a U-grade? I really want to do the exam as ive revised for this day and it's very important but I don't think it's physically possible for me to go in when I'm constantly puking. Help! 😭

    Hey, first of all dont stress, it wont help at all. What you should do is tell your school that you have been sick and see what they have to say on the matter. You could go into school and stay in quarenteen for a while until you feel like you can manage the exam. You could also see if they could let you sit near the back of the exam hall just incase you need to get out quickly. Dont fret, examiners are humans too!
