I couldn’t finish my FAR professional level exam.

I felt sick 1 hour and 15 minutes in and requested the invigilator to allow me to go to the toilet where I vomited. After I wasnt in the right frame of mind to continue.

I have applied for special consideration but don’t know if it will be accepted.

I saw my GP today and they gave me letter that basically said I vomited and couldn’t continue the exam and to take this into account. I don’t know how sufficient this will be.

Has anyone been in this situation before?

Maybe maybe not.
It does say

By attending the exam, you will be presumed to be fit to take the exam and able to fully demonstrate your knowledge and skills. Y


A void mark is


If you are granted special consideration for personal circumstances,then the Assessment Committee will void your exam mark. If you are granted special consideration for exam environment issues,then the Assessment Committee will consider whether to void your exam mark, or in exceptional circumstances they may make an adjustment to the mark, and award a void if the mark remains a fail. A void mark means that you will not receive a mark for the exam, it will not count as an attempt, and you will not be eligible to apply for marks feedback.

You will have to wait and see. You have done the right things.

Hi thanks for replying.

I have read that and I was fine on the morning of the exam. I had audit and assurance in the morning and i managed to complete all of it.

I just dont want to have a fail on my record knowing that i was in a difficult situation.

You are asking an impossible question. You have done all you can so you will have to wait. The fact you went to the GP and the exam centre could verify you could not complete is about as much evidence you could submit. Wait and see, but I cant see how you could have done much more.

Not sure if they are computerised, but if not I would have left a message on my paper stating could not complete, the time and the illness.
