What happens if you literally faint during the exam or have a seizure or something. Do you get to do a resit or do you fail the exam? Do the exam board take it into account while marking, do they look at your predicted grades and make an educated guess?

They may mark what you've done, but will take it into account. If there's two papers, they'll look at your other paper. You might have to resit, but you won't be penalised. It's hardly your fault if you fainted in the exam or became otherwise incapacitated.

Does depend when it happens. If you've done 95% of the paper and you fainted 10 minutes before the end, it'll be viewed differently to if you fainted five minutes after you started.

It won't be your fault that you fainted, they were consider this and allow you to resit.
