Last school year I asked to be entered to do the IGCSE Afrikaans exam, which runs in the November exam period. Today was supposed to be the reading and writing exam.

Two weeks ago I got an email from the head of languages at my school asking me to confirm that I wanted to be entered because it's not in the summer like they thought, and I said yes and they added me on the list.

Today when I asked where I should go they were surprised cos they thought it was in November. But the exam timetable on CIE's website clearly states that one of the exams is on 4th October and the other on the 7th.

The head of languages told me that they were sure it's in November but the exam timetable says it was today??? So have I missed my exam??

Sorry to hear that. Will you make an official complaint via your parents? They should be very embarrassed.

Well it's better that way than missing the exam due to your own fault.

Take it on the chin and dont get wound up by it.

(as an exams officer) I was nearly caught out bu this last year - we think of the Autumn exams as being in November but actually CIE starts in October and their entry deadlines are much earlier than domestic exam boards. Next year I suggest you make sure it's all soretd in priniple in July. (There are 2 options for CIE Afrikaans, with and without a speaking exam so they need to work out what's possible andpick the right one).
