    Do you really have to redo the exam if the school hurt down? I would have thought they would give you your predicions

    they probably would, because for fairness purposes they'd have to create another exam paper, and they wouldn't most likely do that, it'd be easier to give the target grades.

    Hope it happens to me - my predictions will most likely be better than my real grades :P

    Yeah autocorrect,
    Say if there was a fire or something surely they won't ask you to retake so they'll give you your predictions

    It would be a mixture between your predicted results and mock results (if you did any).

    Physics tomorrow, gotta be the easiest science exam by far.

    No we don't. If we attended the exam and anything happens to the papers, it is outside our responsibility and thus it lies on the school. I believe the procedure is that your coursework then dictates your grading.

    It's unfortunate but how or why would they do that? They can't.

    EDIT: apparently you won't have to retake, although I think that's silly.

    Why not? The exam board doesn't have any other paper to see how you would have performed thus predicted grades would be the best method

    No they wouldn't be, they're not predicted by the exam board. As Aurorae said, coursework would be likely, but it would be unfair and frankly stupid on the part of the exam board to award predicted grades.

    They would use it nevertheless,
    Say for ICT coursework I got A*A* but that's because it's coursework and you can take your time etc,
    Doesn't mean I'll achieve an A* in the exam though
