You are not overthinking it.

There could be earthquakes, hurricanes or floods. Anything is likely with Uk summer weather 😁

In the past there have been both IT glitches and strikes which have affected the actual test.

But all of these are somewhat unlikely. What is more likely is that you may get sick. It happens. You havent left yourselff a lot flex.

It might be worth exploring if there is an earlier space. And look before results day as there may be more movement then.

If not, make sure you make the most of the extra revision time and smash it. Remember, somebody takes it first day and last day every year without problems. Why not you ?
