    ATTN: Neil (Or someone like that)

    I've got a horrible Throat, stomach the works but my dilemma is I have 8 serious exams coming this week. Is there anyway were I can postpone them because otherwise I'll probably end up being sick in the exam hall.

    First of all, get your thread titles right. There's no one like Neil, for better or worse.

    Get a doctors note that says how ill you are, then they'll allow you to take them next time round if its GCSE. If its just internal school ones they probably wont give a hoot about them TBH. Managed to get out of uni exams for far less tbh.

    Well cdm is only 14 so it's definately not GCSEs.

    SATs are my bet. If they still do those.

    SATs don't matter. If you're bad, don't turn up. My advice would be the same for any exam - there's no point in doing it unless you're confident of performing at (or very near to) your best.

    But yeah, year nine SATs, just don't bother.

    All SATs are for is league tables. If you're ill and you'd usually be off school, stay off school. They'll use Teacher Assessment grades. Don't worry about it.

    Yeah, kid brother revising for them as we speak, well according to his facebook status, oh the irony

    ANyway, missed my English SATs exam, they gave me a Level "A" as in absent, wish they had also gone with the TA in Maths where twas an 8 but I got a 7 in the exam and thus missed out on getting to my GCSE in Y10.

    think my pencil broke halfway through and my lowest grade ended up being 98%... It's like a government sanctioned test to sort out the teenage mums from the crystal meth addicts..

    Never did SAT's, the joys of non state schooling, though they did bring them in for the year below us, as they were looking to move to 'grant-maintained' status (whatever the eff that meant)

    Means they sell off some of their status for some government control, in return for said subsidy.. Like half a private school, or a good state one..

    Its amazing I dont understand a word of that.

    Dont really know what an SAT is or supposed to do, dont know what a 'TA in Maths' is, dont know what a 7 or 8 relate to and I dont know what Year 10 compares to.

    Hmm, feeling old. Especially as I hear there is something called modular A levels now where the overall grade is given from a range of smaller exams taken over the years rather than the near suicide inducing multiple 4 hr exams at the end of 2 years.
