(Just some context): I've had a pretty awful year what with my parents divorce, my father's abuse and having to move out because I was so scared of him. I've also suffered from depression and anxiety since I was 12 and been self harming on and off, so A Levels have been an extremely difficult and stressful period for me.
My depression and anxiety has increased to breaking point, and the day before the exam I had a complete breakdown and was seriously contemplating suicide. Because of this I missed my exam and my GP has written a letter to the exam board saying that there was no way I could have done the exam with the state I'm in. Apparently what they do now is wait for all the other units to be completed then take an average mark from what I get in the other A-Level units. This makes me even more worried because my speaking mark is hanging in the balance of how I do in the written exam and I'm not sure what to do

Really sorry to read about everything you've been and are going through.
Realistically, if your school and GP are acting on your behalf and have done their part in notifying the exam board, there is not a lot more to be done. Just do your best with the other exams - that's all anyone can ask of you, EVER! Try your hardest and that way at least you will be able to know that you couldn't have done anything more, and you can hold your head high with regards to whatever mark you get
The most important thing at the moment is to keep safe and engage in small acts of self-kindness. That has to take priority at the moment.
Take care and good luck
