    I want to know what happens if someone is absent from an IGCSE subject exam. Do they get No Result on the statement of result or it will mentioned "ABSENT"? If they get No Result on the statement of result, will they get the same mention on their certificate?

    In most cases if they student could not attend their examination and has a reason for which they have given a medical note, they will receive their predicted grade.

    As far as I am aware the certificate would be just like a normal one, it wouldn't say it is a predicted grade.

    Otherwise, ungraded (in other words it's a fail).

    Depends if they have a medical note or not. If they just didn't turn up for no given reason, or the reason was a christening or something they will just get a U

    Thank you for your reply.
    Actually, my concern is not a medical reason. Preparation is not well enough for 2/3 subjects and dropping one of them may help to prepare others well. In this situation, if I choose to absent from one subject, then how this will be mentioned in the statement of result and in certificates?

    It will come up as an X I think

    You would probably get a U for an exam you didn't turn up for, but you might as well go anyway because you could maybe still get at least at D/C without revision if it's an easy enough subject good luck with your GCSEs!!
