    My grandfather died this time last year and in our religion (Sikhism) we do a big anniversary ceremony as an act of remembrance and this was at the weekend. It was quite a difficult time, having all those feelings again and watching my mum fall apart again I have a doctors note for it because it affected my sleeping and consequently my health but was just wondering if it would be taken into account as it is the anniversary of the death, so it isn't recent.

    I don't think it would. I think they only take things into account if they happen like a day or two before, and I don't think an anniversary of a death would count. I'm not sure how the special considerations work, maybe the doctors note would contribute. Your best bet would be to contact your school or the exam board and explain the situation to them. I'm very sorry to hear about your grandfather though, I hope you feel better.

    my grandfather died, I came out as a gay and as a consequence was kicked out out and ****** my art exam up. saying that I didn't apply for special consideration, probably because I have too much pride, not that I'm saying I deserved it.

    Thanks. Yeah, I didn't think so, was just checking it out. My head of sixth said they would take it into account but my exams officer said they wouldn't...will try ringing AQA.
