    So I had my first chemistry exam last week and on the same day I was extremely ill to the point where I had vomitted multiple times before I came to sit the exam. It was difficult to concentrate and I'm positive I did horrible, however I did hand in a medical certificate from my doctor. Despite this, I still have two more exams and I'm sure I can't do well enough to fix the mess of the first one. If i do fail chemistry, what are the chances of me still getting into Uni?

    Quite a stupid question if I'm be honest. Obviously your chances are 0 assuming they want X amount of UCAS points or a certain grade for Chemistry, but of course this depends on the course. Saying that though I find it unlikely you'll be accepted anywhere with a fail as of course all courses have their entry req.

    You would be able to get 2% or 3% extra marks as part of special consideration, however, assuming they approve of your situation.
