    Really? My friend broke her arm (fell out of a tree :rolleyes: ) and as a reslt she has an arm full of metal and according to the docs its a miracle she's able to use it at all. She's allowed a laptop and if the pain gets too bad she has a scribe.
    is that at uni? surprising. i think this guys arm isn't that badly broken. he can obviously write. so he's been told that since he shouldn't have been climbing over a wall (he forgot his key), then he can do without a scribe. in school the broken people had scribes but i guess uni is different...well i guess mine is!

    Lozza what has an injury got to do with an illness? I can't infect myself on purpose. Well I could probably but this isn't a praticuarly nice infection to have
    oh my point is that they simply don't care. you just get on with it and take it. if it's as levels i wouldn't worry about doing badly because resitting is no problem and you'll probably get higher marks if you take them a year or even six months later anyway (with or without illness)

    Ok, you can get a special consideration for being ill in the run-up to exams but it has to be something that serisouly affects revision. I've got spec.con. as I have had glandular fever for a few months, making revision at home almost impossible. You need to talk to your form tutor about it...as soon as mine heard about my illness, she got me to get a letter from my DR. Had my english exam today and am so pleased I have that letter as I felt so so poorly! Good luck

    What happens? I made a thread yesterday about the pains I have in my stomach area and its making revising for longer than 5 mins impossible. If I get a doctors note will they give me my predicted grades?
    It all very much depends. School can decide to give you 25% extra time without any fuss...As for not taking the exams because you are ill and getting grades anyway again it very much depends. I didn't sit my GCSE's because I was ill at the end of Feb and in hospital till the end of April. Originally the exam board told me to resit the whole year but in the end I was able to get special consideration to get GCSE grades without doing the exams. Didn't get fantastic grades compared to what I would have got from sitting some of the exams and finishing coursework but I can't complain as we really did have to fight to even get it in the first place. It all involved a lot of medical evidence from specialists and all sorts really.
