    Basically, I have a physics exam tomorrow and due to various resons I couldn't prepare for it.
    If I do the exam tomorrow I KNOW I won't get higher than a C, and because I want to do medicine I need atleast an A and I can't resit either.
    So is it possible to withdraw tomorrow? Also, will it count as a resit if I sit the exam in june as I've already been entered for it? Thanks

    Internal resits don't count.

    They mean resitting after you got your final grade i think. Me and everyone i knew who applied to medicine resat modules within the two years and got in fine.

    I forgot about 3 biology exams in jan last year and on the results it just showed "X" on it, so you won't get a zero the exam board will just say no result.

    There is always the chance that you could get into some kinda accident on your way to the exam and then get doctors note. That should buy you some time to revise a bit more. But then the downside to that is that you're goin to get injured in some way. Unless you don't mind that then yea.. it's definately a way to get out of anything really.

    As for resits.. they're not a good idea. You're just adding more pressure onto yourself. Better to go into the exam prepared to do it right the first time round. Rather than goin in thinking that it's alright to do badly in the exam because there's always a resit. Trust me, having that frame of mind will get you nowhere. Well, okay, maybe not nowhere.. you'll still get to where you want to go but you'll be one of those people that lag behind, instead of being ahead of the crowd.

    You're probably just nervous right now. As would anyone be with an exam the next day.. But yea, you'll be alright. You've spent all that time revising, so you gotta trust yourself to know the stuff now n just do it. Do not think about resitting, cos if you do, you're bound to end up resitting. maybe. It's a likely possibility.

    Yeah you can If you resit within the two years of A Level, they don't mind, and even if they did, they wouldn't find out. Don't worry

    I missed my Physics exams because I was going through a medication induced breakdown.
    I also missed AS ones because I was in the contagious phase of chicken pox.
    So yes, you can. But, a little perspective. AS Physics wouldn't be hard to revise this evening.
