    Was it only one exam that she missed? I thought there were 2 exams for english lit. There is a girl in my school missed a couple of exams because she was sick and she is going to be graded on the other one for that subject.

    to be fair, gcses dont mean much anyway.

    its different for a levels isnt it how they give you grades if you miss an exam?

    but the system at my school is if you miss an exam, you get your predicted grade. its unfair cuase if you get all A* predicted grades, you could just i dunno, get a doctor to make a fake doctors note that you have chicken pox. and you wont have to do any exams.
    lifes unfair.

    And anyway-for a subject like english or english Lit the mark scheme is quite ambiguous-you have to fullfill al of the C criteria before you move to be and so one. There was this girl at our school-the content, structure and language was 'A*' quality however she foregot to paragraph--she ended up with a D! so to be hones i'd have more faith in the teachers estimate than the mock.

    I think its important to remember that if you are genuinly ill then sitting an exam is horrible - and you dont want to be in an exam hall feeling very sick. I think its a great idea that if you are ill then you can still get a grade - its not your fault if you are ill. It doesnt really matter if its the mock grade or the predicated grade that gets counted. At the end of the day its only 1 GCSE! And I'd rather get a grade than none atall - even if it is an E!
