    Migraines are pretty terrible, but I'm also not sure you'd be sat in front of a screen with one either. Usually I can't even be in a room with lights on or anything. Because of the heat, make sure you stay hydrated. Take a cool bottle of water into your exam with you and make sure you've eaten something, maybe toast or crackers. I hope you feel better soon. Good luck in your exam!

    Contact doctor and college. If the migraine (assuming it is one) is bad enough for you to miss your exam you will need a doctors note for extenuating circumstances and to tell college as soon as possible. If you think you can manage your exam the doctor will be able to give you strong painkillers like cocodamol or ones designed for migraines to make it easier. It also just generally helps to get a diagnosis and check nothing has triggered it.
    Be sure to stay hydrated as heat and dehydration could have triggered it. Staying away from as much noise and light as possible helps (maybe have a nap). I'm sure your sister can give you more advice on coping so i'll leave it at that.
