    I have a Core 3 exam in 30 mins but I am not going to it.
    Due to lack of preparation, not enough revision.
    I need to phone my college, what do I say?
    I am an external candidate.
    Do I say ' I won't be attending todays Core 3 exam' or 'I'm withdrawing...'

    It's better to go and get a D than not go and get a U.

    Go anyway!

    Actually if you don't turn up, you get an X. I think then your overall grade could be an X as you won't have done enough modules to get graded, unless you do it in the summer.

    It's a re-sit which I can re do in June.
    Unlike my other exams which would have suffered, and the only chance I could have done them was this Jan.

    I withdrew from my C2 exam earlier this month, which was a resit. I went into school, told the exams officer I wanted to be withdrawn and then had to sign a piece of paper saying that. It's really easy. I may or may not sit it in the summer, depends on whether any unis ask for it!

    I think you should go; last year for my C3 exam, I overslept and lived two bus journeys away from my school, I thought I wasn't going to make it and was about to phone school. I managed to get there in the nick of time and ended up getting 97% (despite having no breakfast, was knackered and feeling ill). You should give it a shot regardless of how well you think you are going to do; you might do better than expected.

    Haha wow, kudos to you! Woot for Lufbra too!

    But yeah, think positive and giving it a shot and have more of a chance of passing rather than not trying at all and definitely failing! You're better off trying this exam I reckon...I think not taking an exam should only be done in extreme circumstances!

    Actually its probably best to turn up and fail it completely. (in my opinion!)

    If you get a U then it doesn't have to be declared on UCAS.

    I've already got a C for this exam.
    I was aiming for an A, thats not going to come with no revision.
