    Hi,

    Im in urgent need of help, i have my government and politics Unit 2 exam tomorrow and i don't know if i am going to go. Today i had my English Language exam and was sick during the exam around 10 times and then when i got home i was sick a few more times. Not only am i sick but the stomach cramps are unbearable and during the English exam i was shaking and couldn't write. Ive got an exam tomorrow but i haven't been able to revise today and i feel awful. When i am on my period i become severly ill so i could get a doctors note. If i missed the exam would they use my target grade or the grade i got in my last mock. In my last mock i got an awful grade and i don't think its a reflection on my ability as i have been getting A's all year. I want to do Law at uni and need at least a B. Before the mock i found out my Dad had cancer and it was at a severe stage so i was on the verge of tears during the mock.

    My life is going on a downwards spiral and i really don't know what to do.

    Any help would be much appreciated thank you

    Hey,
    I'm in a simular situation as you.
    I found out that my grandma passed away yesterday and that her funeral will be at the time of my exam on Thursday.
    So what i did was, i called the school, and they have organised for me to take it at 8am, and then my mum has to watch (no phone) in isolation till 2;00. This could be an option for you? Also my mocks were terrible i got a D!- and if i missed the exam they said they would use a mixture of predicted and mocks etc...however don't worry...you can re take this exam next year! - You can just explain on your form what happened, it shouldn't affect your future. At my school most of the A2 are retaking unit 2, so don't worry!
    Hope this has helped! xxx

    hey, i can relate almost entirely. my cramps often mean i am sent home in an ambulance, i throw up every time i am on, i get dizzy, the shakes, literally everything. my advice, i'm not a doctor or anything and obv check the ingredients but try "Feminax" medicine. you can get it at the pharmacy and honestly its a life saver. paracetamol, mefenamic acid etc dont work for me but this is such a powerful medication

    i also have gov and politics tomorrow and i am also hoping to do law at uni (how are we so similar lol?) i would reccommend going to the exam, honestly but call the school and ask if any rearrangments can be made. perhaps you could sit in a separate room with an invigilator where you could throw up all u want but still sit the exam? but if you cant, you can always retake it at A2, dont worry about that!

    im wishing you all the best, i know exactly how you feel. i hope it all goes well and things start looking up xx
