Hey,

last week i sat my history exam and I do my exams on a laptop, the laptop i done it on basically broke and lost the exam so the entire exam is gone, what happens from here? do i just get a U, i've been told the maximum percentage you can get is 5%? i have another exam tomorrow, would i just be awarded the grade i get for that or what?

It's the first time it's happened at my college so they don't know what's going to happen

anyone been in a similar situation before? or can anyone help me?

Talk to your exams officer. As you can imagine, this has happened before. As long as you and the centre took reasonable steps to ensure the work was not lost (saved regularly onto a memory stick etc) then they should be able to sort it out fairly with the exam board.
