    I have a chemistry exam in the morning and have been sick multiple times. I cannot get up and i have a recurring fever. I don't think I can sit my exam tomorrow. I have sat chemistry at AS and achieved an E. What happens if I'm not well enough to sit my exam at all?

    You will need to get into gear in the morning,
    If you are feeling the same, you would need to get someone to phone your centre on your behalf (i see you are unable to due to your symptoms, ask for the exams person, and explain your issue. They would then recommend the next steps, although i am 90% sure that they won't let you miss it unless the circumstances were extenuating. (bereavement, hospitalisation etc.)

    Any of:
    *Pass grade
    *Predicted Grade/Target Grade
    *Top grade (least likely, as it is a pretty low reason compared to anything extenuating)
    Although you can ask about that at the time of calling and they say you will miss it)

    Depends on what the exams officer can do for you.
    If you can't attend and they wont give a grade to you, I think they may discount the exam from the set,
    I would google a little bit though.

    I wouldn't bank on it though.
