    Ok, so the GCSE practical I.T exam is in 2-3 weeks. I know nothing. I haven't done any work this year. I want to drop it, but our assistant head or whatever her position is - won't let me. It would be waste of both time and effort since I anyways have 8 other GCSE's and hopefully doing 3 or 4 AS's next year, and where I live and will study, this is enough (minimum is 8 GCSE without any AS), so yeah.

    Anyways, she said if I have anything to say let my parents make an appointment with her and she'll tell them why it's a bad idea, blablabla.

    The thing is I will not sit the exam, even if they didn't officially allow me to, I'd rather have an x on my report than a D or E. Hopefully I'd do good in my other subjects, and IT will only ruin my report aesthetically, and also decrease my average.

    What can I do, other than not show up for the exam?
