    I was very ill for the first few months of sixth form this year and as a result missed huge amounts of the course and have spent the rest of the year catching up and basically self teaching, and am totally unprepared for my fp3 exam tomorrow which is really hard, if i was too say i was really ill tomorrow and not attend, would i get my predicted grade? or would i get a 'U' and therefore fail further maths a level?

    I'm pretty sure you'll need a doctor's note saying that you really were too ill to attend, and you wouldn't just be given your predicted grade. You might be able to retake next year.

    Unless the illness manifests itself while you were actually sitting the exam, then you won't be considered for adverse circumstances. Proof of this would also have to be provided, such as a doctors note.

    Also, if you actually sit the exam you won't be given a predicted grade, you might be lucky and be awarded a few extra marks however, but I believe it's a very limited amount

    I'm afraid I don't know any more than that - your school's exam officer would know more. If I were you I would sit the exam unless you would be able to get a doctor's note saying you're too ill to sit it, as if you miss it without a very good reason then they would probably just give you a U.

    The exam board does not collect predicted grades - marks for missed units are calculated in other ways. Your school will require some evidence that you are ill. If you are caught cheating then you will be reported for malpractice and may lose more than just this unit.
