I know how it feels to have to cram the day before. Unfortunately I believe that if you miss a paper due to lack of sleep you are awarded no marks. However other papers that you have sat will still count towards your grade. If you don't achieve the grade you expected then resitting is always an option.

They don't calculate it because there's nothing to calculate. You'll get an X grade which means you didn't turn up, which gives you 0 for that paper. You have no special circumstances to justify why you didn't turn up, it's your fault you were trying to revise late last night. Your overall result will be decided from everything else you completed. You'll probably have to resit GCSE English.

You may need English Language, I've heard people not being accepted to college and needing to resit as they don' have language.

Even if the college doesn't mind whether you've passed language or literature (which is unusual as most sixth forms and colleges want language), you will need language for the future. 99%+ of all universities ask for language to be passed, a lot of employers also demand this and will not be happy with literature instead.

You won't get any marks for that paper. Sorry but you have a responsibility to ensure you turn up to the exam. Unless you applied for special consideration and HAVE A VALID REASON (which you don't), you'll be awarded 0.

You're literally going to need upwards of 95% to have a chance of getting a pass overall since you've got a big fat 0 for one paper.

Sorry mate but you're looking at a resit. And let that be a lesson to you about last minute cramming and not setting an alarm

What do you want to do past college?

Having to explain to University/ future employers why you don’t have English Language GCSE will likely work against you.
