    Yeah I think you have to resit.

    Although if you die beforehand you posthumously get given your predictions.

    And if somebody dies in the hall everyboy gets an extra 5%.
    its gotta be more than 5 its 5 if you pet dies on the exam day, and like 15% if a close family member has just died

    First of all, I think she will have to pay the school for missing the exam; because it costs money. That's what we were told. She will probably have to resit or get an unofficail grade. What was wrong with her anyway?

    Thats a load of balls! No way would that happen. The point of doing Mocks in Y11 is so that you get a feel for what the exam will be like BUT most importantly getting a grade if you don't do your actual GCSE. I know this because my Dad is Exam Co-ordinator at a school.

    No, because you would have to use either the other hand or a laptop, with given extra time.

    One of my friends missed a Spanish writing, because he forgot, and had to rush back to school to sit it at 4:00. Whether it will count however...

    It sounds darn right unfair and possibly, dodgy thing that is going on here. If that person got an E for the mock, he/she should get that for the exam if they missed it. It's so unfair I would even report the incident to the exam invigilator or contact the board.

    I doubt this. From what I know about the exam system [very little], the exam board will ask a person's teacher what grade they think they deserve based on academic performance. The grade suggested by the teacher is usually the grade achieved in the Y11 mock exam, with possible consideration of the year 10 exam. I think they ask to see a person's mock exam and coursework [if this wasn't selected as part of the sample] to confirm the teacher's judgement.

    Not sure though - not that it matters anyway because I'm just concentrating on what I have to do for my exams.

    I thought everyone got A*s if someone died, or that is if someone shoves do penicls up heir nose and kills themselves or something.

    Somone in my English class had been away for the last few weeks of school, and came to school on the day of the English lit exam in really bad state. Apparently he was rushed to hospital soon after, and hasnt taking any other exams. Poor guy.

    I'm sorry but isn't this your friend you're talking about? You're getting worked up about one B grade your friend got due to an illness? I can understand your point of view, it's not fair she gets it for doing nothing and we all work hard, etc. But seriously, it's just a grade. Not the end of the world. How ill is she, anyway? I doubt it was just a little headache...if it was, then perhaps okay it's not very fair. But a serious illness, then leave her be. Everyone's just doing their job.
