    Well, well, well...

    I had to get my dog, Meg, put down yesterday after 12 years. Very sad conditions are what I'm currently living under.

    To make things that much better, I have 2 a-level exams on the coming Tuesday and Thursday and tbh I haven't done any revision this weekend so I reckon Classics on Tuesday is not going to go well.

    Obviously, as much as I may not want to, I still have to sit the exam but I feel so horrible atm idk if I should talk to someone at college or something about it to see if the exam board will take this into account. (Why not capitalise on my misery, ey?) But idk if they'll think a dead dog is serious enough

    Considerations for bereavement only count for extremely close family members (parents and siblings, it can be very hard to get it for grandparents and aunts and uncles), pets don't count.

    Our family cat was poisoned and killed during my AS Levels and my sister's GCSEs (and tbf it was properly her cat as well). You just gotta get on with it, I'm afraid. Sorry for your loss though. :hugs:

    Very sorry to hear about this. The most important thing is to now try your best to focus your attention onto your upcoming A Level examinations. Just try your best and sort any special considerations out afterwards. It may well be the case that whilst you will not get the grades you wanted to get, the universities that you apply for will consider the circumatances if you make them aware. Also, the JCQ (in charge of overseeing all examinations from any board) state that in special circumstances a small amount can be added onto your raw marks. This normally is after the candidate has had illness and has therefore been disadvantages in revision, although there is certainly a case for you. The deadline for applying for special considerations is not until the end of July, so there is no need to worry right now about. Perhaps it is worth seeing your exam officer at your college soon to explain situation and ask them to apply for you.
    Good luck.
