    Hi, I'm going to miss my Maths exam on Thursday because I'm attending a funeral. If I miss the exam will I be able to retake the exam in the same week or month if I bring a note in?

    Nope, you can't retake it this year at all, people who did the exam might have told you whats coming up. Either now or next year

    Sorry its impossible to bring a note in and for everything to be fine. Even if u did bring a note the school would need to contact the exam board directly which is a bit late. You would have to retake maths gcse next year im afraid and things are completely changing and getting harder. If i were u I would do the exam. V sorry about this the exam is tomorrow so idek

    He would get a U on results day if he only did paper 1. Or an F, if he did well on paper 1... If you miss an exam, you get a U for it no matter what -- controlled assessments / other exams can bring it up - but maths paper 2 is like 70% so...

    I don't think you can get any special consideration unless it's the funeral of a parent. I could be wrong on this, but I do agree with what has been said above: it'll probably not be until next year you can sit the exam and with the spec change, it could be messy.
