    Ofc people are refused.

    Read the JCQ rules and guidelines and talk to your teachers and the exam officer.
    You have nothing to lose if you apply.
    The guidelines give you a decent idea of what they look for and how they treat each situation.
    It is ten just a case of you having the evidence.

    My school applied for special consideration for my exams this year...
    I had surgery fairly close to the start of exams and was still recovering/ in pain from it when they started.

    Also, in my Edexcel music exam we had noise that was more than momentary as the music room is right above the drama studio and no one thought to re-locate the lesson-.- (The exam was partially a listening paper so I think we're more likely to be accepted for that reason)

    Don't know if my claims have been accepted yet...
