    I dunno what's up with me, but I woke up this morning and started vomiting several gulps...and since, I've slept for 6 hours to somewhat alleviate these symptoms. What do I do? Man up?

    What do you want to do?

    You can go to the Drs and get a letter confirming you are ill and unable to sit the exam.

    You can then decide whether you want to sit the exam or not.

    If you sit the exam and have the Drs note you can apply for special consideration, which might allow for a small increase in your grade.

    If you dont sit the exam, but have completed 50% of the exams in the subject you can apply for special consideration and if successful they will give you a grade based on exams completed.

    Does coursework count? Like for my English exam, done 40%, so not really reached the 50% mark because that is how much the coursework is worth!

    Do what you can to help yourself get better quickly.
    Don't go to the doctor's unless you really are ill enough to need to see one.
    You will almost certainly be OK within 'a few days', i.e. in time for your exam, but if you're still ill the day before then contact your exam officer to ask what the options are - they may well be able to put you in a separate room if you are still being sick.

    I believe so, but that wouldnt be 50%.

    You can look at the regulations here on p8 and 9

    But I still have alot to study, and I'm not able to, so when it does come to exam time, I don't feel I'll be sufficiently prepared.
