    I'm wondering whether you can do your A level exams in a psychiatric hospital? I'm worried I'll be hospitalised soon, and my A2 exams are 5 weeks away - I can't miss them, I really can't. Can I do them in hospital? anyone got any idea or experience ?

    Hi, my friend took an exam in hospital, but it all depends upon what college/ sixth form you are at etc and what guidelines they have around it. The best thing to do will be to talk to your head of sixth form or someone in charge at college about your situation and ask them what they recommend. You will probably need to get proof from your doctor, but the sooner you speak to your college then the better because if you are able to sit the exams in hospital then they will need to arrange for someone to take the papers to you in hospital and sit with you for the duration of the exam (to ensure don't cheat).

    But as I said if it is definite you are going to the psychiatric hospital then the more notice you can give your college the better,

    Could you talk to your care team about the hospitalisation issue? If they are suggesting putting you in hospital maybe see what they say?

    I think some adolescent wards allow you to take exams. But I imagine an adult ward or PICU wouldn't let you. However if you are voluntary you will be allowed leave so you could go into school to do them (provided you aren't a big risk) and if you are sectioned you can get section 17 leave to go and take them. Obviously that depends on if you are safe and you cooperate with hospital.

    But I would suggest talking to your care team about your worries. If they know this maybe they can suggest other options (eg the crisis and home treatment team)
