If a university has already accepted you, and you've sat your AS exams but aren't able to sit your A2 exams, what steps are taken?
I'm only asking as my mental health has been suffering intensely in the past couple of months, with my parents insisting on hospitalisation (bad history when I last declined). But I think that would look way worse than grades below my full potential, I did really well last year and all year through the mocks. I'm just so anxious that it'll all slip at the last minute, not only screwing up the exams but the image that'll present to the university. I'm applying for English Literature at Goldsmiths, so I've been assured that their focus will be on my English grade, but it all seems like a lose lose situation.
Edit: please excuse any (ironic) grammatical errors lol, panic state.
COmpost seems to have beaten me to it!
I would also get your school to write to your firm and explain the situation. Knowing issues before, or soon after, the exams seems to work better than waiting for results; I've had several students get accepted on low grades through this route.
I've also had students sit exams in hospital - some after severe injuries - exam boards do try to be fair within the guidelines.
