    I have an exam in like 6 weeks and I'm not ready for it, we have like 3 topics left to learn and I'm no where near revision lol. If I don't turn up to the exam will it show up on my results sheet?

    Possibly yes, and you don't want to be a U I suppose, so you best start revising from now besides you have 3 weeks you can do a lot in that time

    Your school will have registered you for the exam so you will get a grade even if you don't turn up, and it'll either be U or X (I think X is only if disqualified but I'm not sure).

    You will get an X, which pretty much means you didn't do the exam.. I know because a guy in my class did it

    If you have a valid excuse like you are in hospital at the time of the exam the examination boared will award you a mark bassed on your average and the national average for people who scored similar amount of marks as you on the other papers. You could fake fainting or you could actually brake your arm on hour beffore hand so you are in hospital for the exam

    You will get an X, meaning that not enough of the qualification was sat to assign a grade.

    Just turn up to the exam, and try to revise as much as you can, 6 weeks is plenty! A D/E is better than a U or X.

    Thing is, X doesn't really count so you just don't have the qualification, so you don't need to put it on UCAS sand stuff. Whereas for a U you would need to
