Hi guys, I've recently had food poisoning and an ear infection which both leads to me not being able to sleep very well (ear pain and abdominal cramps) as well as not being able to concentrate on exams and having to rush out in the middle of c4 for diarrhoea (sorry for the tmi description). I've been to a walk in centre (which is basically a place where you get seen by medical staff as my GP had no appointments). So they saw me and gave me a letter of attendance but obviously to apply for special considerations you need a formal letter from a doctor with like the reason and stuff (which the walk in centre can't provide). I have a GP appointment for Tuesday next week, but my next exam is on Monday and it's fp2 where concentration and focus is really necessary ... Do I have to have the letter by fp2 or is there another deadline by which the extenuating circumstances thing can be sent off? Would speak to exams officer but it's currently the weekend so idk what to do, alternatively are there places that offer the letter writing services? I don't want to go through the c4 havoc again, I really couldn't concentrate and couldn't even finish the paper
Thanks to those reading
Tldr: need GP letter for an exam which is on Monday, first gp appointment is on Tuesday. Help?
Urgent: a level extenuating circumstances Watch

Stop stressing and talk to your exams officer on Monday. You don't necessarily need a doctor's letter - lots refuse to write them and seeing a doctor's just to get a note is a waste of everyone's time. The centre should be fully aware you had an issue in C4 if you have to leave the exam (we keep records of who has been to the toilet, when and for how long for every exam) and any medication should have kicked in by Monday to reduce your symptoms. The deadline for applying for special consideration is not for over a week so there is plenty of time to sort this out with the Exams officer..Last edited by Compost; 25-06-2016 at 11:26.

As above. Calm down. Talk to your school on Monday. Go to the booked Dr's appointment as planned. Do some revision and take the exam.
