    Waste of time crying or being scared.

    What age is 8th grade?? Which country is this?

    1. Get your parents or you can talk to head of year.
    2. Just carry on working through the summer and agree to catch up that way. Should be ok unless its an exam year.

    Ok if I was in your situation, then I would:

    1. Realise there was nothing I could do about being ill.
    2. Talk to the head or get my parents to and make them aware you might not do as well this year because of the time missed.
    3. Work to keep up to date with existing lesson.
    4. At the same time have a plan to do the time you missed as quickly as possible.
    5. I cant speak for the Belgium system, but in the UK then those exams wouldnt count for much.
    6. Talk to teacher and say you will try your best, but performance may suffer and you will catch up over the summer.
    7. Use revision books as replacement notes and try t get a basic understanding quickly on the bits missed.
    8. Do the best you can in the exam and maybe even focus on just the stuff you have covered and half the stuff you havent. You dont always have to know 100% of the course to get a good mark.
    9. Have a revision timetable to make sure you cover as much as you can by working hard, but dont overdo it.
    10. Accept you just do your best and thats the way to make much less likely you will have to repeat.
    11. If you have to repeat then it is not a big deal. If you do 1-10 though I dont think you will.
    12. Catch up over the summer anyway.
    13 Crying and worrying wont score you extra marks, so focus on things that help you.
    14 have a rest after the exams.
    15. It will be fine.
