Are you at a UK school? the exams are they important? I thought everyone had finished?
Talk to your school. Not sure why the uni is relevant?

Can you tell me what exams these are and for what qualification? Are they real or mocks?
Why are the results important?

I dont quite understand whats happening? If you make it clear I can tell you what to do.

Do you not have an old pair you can use as a back-up? I personally have my last 2-3 pairs of glasses kept as back-ups for this purpose.

So you are already at the uni? You need to speak to your tutor asap and show them the prescription and time it takes. It is crazy for you not to have a spare pair. How strong is your prescription?


It appears it renders it impossible for you to take the exam. they may let you do resits.

If the lenses aren't broken, can you tape/glue the frames temporarily? So sorry this happened to you.

I have -4.75 in both eyes and I can study fine. When in the actual exam the paper is really close to you so you should be able to read it. Are you sure you can't power through it? The only alternatives I can think of is getting contact lenses, but if you haven't worn any before it might be difficult for you.
