That doesn't sound right at all. I have been dealing with panic attacks for 5 years now and have just this year been granted access arrangements for my exams (rest breaks). Speak to your form tutor (or whatever your equivalent is) about it because there will be someone at your college whose job it is to assess needs for exams under the Equality Act 2010 (where all students must be equal and so special modifications are made in order to make this happen). There isn't any need for medical evidence (or there wasn't in my case because my college have been working with me through CBT so they are fully aware of the extent of my condition).

Unfortunately, this Friday may just be a time to sit it out as it doesn't sound like they're willing to do anythign for you this week. However, definitely speak to someone about getting assessed for access arrangements as it really does help. Best of luck x

I suffer from these too. I'd never have been able to do my uni exams if it weren't for my beta-blockers. Have you spoken to a doctor about treatment options?

Panic attacks is medical condition and no one wants them to happen but some people think people who suffer panic attacks just joke but in reality they don't know nothing because they never experienced it

Once you've got the note it'll be better because they should have little choice but to put arrangements in place for you. Unfortunately, without evidence, it can be difficult to get them to do it
