My school is still doing btec exams. I’m currently experiencing covid symptoms, however, my exam is tomorrow. Should I email my school and explain that I’m having covid symptoms or should I still do the exam even though someone I live with is high risk ?

Hi, if you have symptoms then you should not go into college - that's what is safest for you, other students and staff. Let your college know just to check that's okay. If possible, you should also get a test and self-isolate. I'm a BTEC student as well so I keep checking for news and updates and it seems like all students who are unable to take the exam this month will get their grades some other way. Some students have decided not to go in for the exam (without having symptoms) despite their college saying they will go ahead. Currently, it seems like mini assessments will form the basis of our grades, though teacher assessment may come into it as well. Hope you and your family are well, the symptoms you're experiencing could mean nothing but it's best to be on the safe side.

You should email ur school...cus the examboard will consider those who arent able to do those exams. My teacher said they may have a backup exam for those individuals
