    Two different A level Stories

    Boy 1 - Boy came down with the mumps (lol!) for his A levels and he WANTED to sit his exams even though he was ill but the school wouldn't allowed any teacher to go to his house to supervise or let him in any part of the school.

    He would have been better off sitting then because the exam boards all got a copy of his doctor's note and then gave him his grades based on his predicted ones and tooks them down 1-2 grades. The boards were WJEC, Exdehell (spelling) and AQA

    Boy 2 - His mother had an illness and died shortly before the exams, he sat them all and the exam boards then marked them and took his overall grade and put it up a grade each!

    Although Boy 2 was griefing and I understand that, Boy 1 didn't ask for the mumps and it wasn't his fault he got them and should have been treated better than he was.

    Excuse me. Why calling each other crap and rubbish? There are different exam boards and different circumstances people. Sheesh!
    i wasnt calling him crap, but what he said is. a doctors note is the same for all exam boards otherwise doctors wood have to write out one for AQA, Edexcel etc..
    To gain a doctors note the illness has to be on-going and one that is going to affect the results or an accident the day before.
    I only brought it up cuz im sure the dude has enough to think abwt without that person making him feel worse. if you noticed im not a controversial member, i dont start arguements.. i just feel passionatley about stuff to do with health cuz of the process ive been through as im sure a lot of people on here have done
