I have sprained my thumb from playing rugby today and I don’t think it’ll heal in time for my WJEC English and Numeracy exam next week, any idea on what I should do? I can’t contact the school it’s half term. I am also struggling to revise because of my injury. I honestly don’t know what to do.

You have to be able to contact somebody. My friend was attacked and assaulted 2 months before our A-Level exams this year, ended up with a broken shoulder, nose and cheekbone and he got into contact with pretty much everybody during the May half-term. Email your teachers, head of year, head of department, head teacher. Even though it's the holidays, teachers still check their emails.
Write an email, mark it as high priority and send it to them. That's all you can do right now. They'll probably get you a scribe or a laptop to do your exam on, or give you extra time.

You have to get into contact. Email, phone calls everything. They will get you special consideration. Download a notes app on your phone for now and use that to revise. I sprained my wrist a couple of weeks ago and am just starting to be able to write again and as a sixth form student it's really impacted me. Honestly I'd advise you to get a notes app, try to keep revising in alternate ways such as completing past questions on microsoft and printing your answers if you want a physical copy. It's going to be slower but if you keep at it and adapt quickly, it'll help you and save you lots of time. Let me know if you need any further advice and I'll try to help as best as I can. Good luck in your exam!
