    my gp has given me this letter but im not sure it makes sense and will allow me to sit a smaller room for my mock tests
    can someone help me, please tell me if this letter even makes sense and will it be allowed for me to move to a smaller room for a GCSE'S.
    THE GP LETTER:

    "This patient tells me that he had mock exams in December. He has told me what symptoms he was experiencing during the exams and I can now conclude that this patient has anxiety. This could be detrimental to his grades .I'd be very grateful if you would take this into consideration and make him sit the exams in a smaller room."

    Yes it makes sense.
    It supports the idea that you have anxiety and should be allowed to do your exams in a smaller room.

    Did you talk to anyone in school in December about your issues? Were they evident during the exams? (The invigilators would probably have noticed and made a note of it. ) If not then I wouldn't rate your chances of getting a small room as very high.

    Compost is an exam officer, so would have first hand experience. Why dont you think the letter makes sense? it is a typical Drs letter. What do you expect the Dr to say?

    My school did.
    I now have any exam/test in a seperate room

    So they should do it
    You parents may need to come in or write to the school and the school will most likely contact your GP

    It is up to them. They may already have a smaller room where other anxious students go. Tbh used to like looking around a bit and if you focus, then you are in your own little bubble anyway. You should wait and see what they say.
