    ive given a letter from my gp to my school saying that i am facing these symptoms when ever i take a exam in the hall and that it would be better if i move to a smaller space.
    but today my teacher looked at it and told me it would be very unlikely as there is not that much evidence

    what can i do???

    I would suggest asking to be referred to a mental health professional and acquiring a complete doctors letter explicitly stating it could be detrimental to your grades. It would also be useful showing your school councillor or support staff too as its always helpful having a teacher on side when dealing with difficult teachers.

    Which teacher? You need to talk to an exams officer and get your parents involved.

    Follow this up - they can't ignore a doctor's letter. I used to be the SENCo so know this is important.

    There are now so many students asking for small rooms that it may require a letter from a specialist (rather than just a GP) or evidence of a long term and established problem before it can be granted.
