Pretty sure they'll take into account the circumstances but if they let her do the paper it'll boil down to how prepared she was irregardless of what happened. Pass on my condolences

If she had genuine reasons for being late (and it certainly sounds like she does) then she should get her predicted grade. If she had doctors note for her medical issues that day it would make it easier but from the sounds of it the school should have been aware of what was going on with her nan anyway so should be able to deal with it.

Your teachers are wrong. The draft exam timetables for next year are already available on the exam board websites and all the current specification units (AS and A2) are available to re-sit next year.

Is the exam board AQA? It's been confirmed we can retake next year.

They don't use predicted grades but it may be possible to claim special consideration and get marks for the missed unit - the exams officer, in full possession of the facts, will be able to advise and apply.

Being brutally honestly, having 3 different reasons for why she turned up late (how late?) does make it sound like a load of excuses for not getting there and not being unable to take it.

Aw, I hope things get better for your friend. If anything she certainly could re sit modules next year so if that's the only module she's missed, she could re-sit that one module then explain to universities what happened if she decides to reapply for next years set. She won't have to re-sit everything unlike the new A level where students in this position would have to sit the AS and A2 modules again even if they sat and did well in the others. The new A levels is much like the current Cambridge Internationals (CIE) format without November resits. Overall, she'll be ok.
