    Hey,

    Just been to my doctors, and he's advised me not to go in because of my flu like symptoms/rash.

    I would much rather do this C3 exam this January rather than wait till May. Does anyone know how this works?

    Thanks

    Well, he's advised you not go in so you probably shouldn't but it's only advice. Be prepared for the wrath of your friends though if they get whatever you've got if you do decide to go in!

    Was it for your health or a concern that you are contagious? Contact your exams officer and get advice. They may be able to set you up in isolation from other students.

    Its hardly fair if you decide to go in and infect someone at risk/close to someone at risk, just because you'd rather get an exam out of the way. Alot of people will have younger brothers and sisters at home, could you imagine if you gave it to someone who passed it on to a child who became really ill or even died? I know I'm being a bit dramatic but thats why they advise you not to do things, because of worst case scenario.

    If you don't do the c3 exam this January then you'll have to wait till May/June which is bad if you have more exams in the summer.

    personally I don't feel that well either, just the last couple of days of revision has really made me feel ill'ish but a exam is an exam and I'm have to keep revising and do me best.:rolleyes:

    At times of exams it's everyone for themselves, would you think his friends and classmates would take pity on him cause his sick?
    If he doesn't take the exam it's like a missed opportunity to get an exam out of the way rather than thinking about it during the summer which he probably won't be as prepared for as now.
    So I say if he is still able to walk or crawl and lift up a pen he should sit the exam. For the greater good my son!

    Obviously I do want to go in and sit the exam, but like most of you say it's hardly fair to pass it on.

    I'm predicted an A*, but having to do C3/C4 in May, would really reduce the chances of getting this, do they always reschedule the exams, rather than basing it on other unit results?

    If it's because he thinks you will pass it on to everyone contact your school, if they are anything like mine they will be able to put you in isolation.

    Agree with this.

    Ask if they can put you in isolation and then arrange to go home straight after the exam.

    Unless it's the last ever exam session of a legacy A-level, they will never give you a predicted grade.
