    I have just went to the doctors as I've had hand pain for some time (We suspect it is arthritis as it runs in the family) It pains me to do exams and I, on the 6th of June have 3 exams back to back totaling 3Hours and 45 Mins of exams in one day.

    I HAVE gotten a doctors note but my school enters a holiday next week and I come back on the day of the dreaded exams.
    Is it possible to get the extra time approved BEFORE the 6th of June?
    With a doctors note and a very good relationship with all teachers?

    Go and talk to your head of year/pastoral team.
    • Consider whether a laptop or rest breaks might help you - these don't need the same level of evidence.
    • If the exams total more than 3 hours you can move one to the other session in the day..
