And what if you don't ????(Original post by 999tigger)
You will need to contact the college amd supply them with all the evidence. That includes supporting evidence from your school and Dr. They may let you start if you agree to retake the GCSE as well. You need to get off TSR now and focus on the rest of your exams.
If you do really well in the rest of your exams that will indicate you are an able sudent.
can exam boards do that ???? Watch

Basically i have diabetes and I missed three GCSE exam, I called the invigilator because I was vomiting and dizzy so I couldn't even concentrate. the invigilator is saying that because I missed three exams they might not let me do them???
Even if this isn't possible then the 6th form you applied for may allow you to start the A levels you want if your school supports you. Talk to your school about what is possible.

I'm assuming you were present for these exams but were taken ill? If so, your exams officer will apply for special consideration and your raw marks will be uplifted by a small amount (3% is typical for diabetes). You will not be awarded your predicted grade as schools no longer submit predicted grades.
The information you need is here.
The way illness is handled these days is pretty harsh in my opinion. Don't blame your invigilator or exams officer though - none of this is within their control.

Did you inform your exams officer of your diabetes prior to the exams? My son suffers with Migraine and he got a letter from his GP confirming this and listing his medication. When he gave the exams officer the letter she said it would be kept in his file to be forwarded on to the exam board if required. If he was ill but still able to sit the exam they would ask for special consideration and he could be awarded up to 5% increase in marks. If he was unable to take the exam then they would use a combination of predicted grades, mock results and reference to the other papers of the same subject.
There's no way that you can sit the exact same papers you missed, that ship has sailed.
