    I was expecting an exam, but some sort of miscommunication between the school and board meant that I wasn't, and it was only noticed the morning of the exam, given that I was due to sit it at 12 noon. There were spare papers included over the number of entrants and a quick call to the exam board sorted it, and I went through with the exam no problems. This was in 1997.

    Even with a day or so notice nowadays, all it takes is a few seconds for an admin at the exam board to sort it out and the papers can be sent next day courier.

    Try to get it sorted ASAP but you might have to pay extra?

    The college should be the one footing the bill for their mistake

    I agree but some colleges are very stingy. I hope they do pay though for their mistake.
