Inform the teacher about the mc.. I am sure she can take it another day...I don't think your child can take the test in this condition.

I do not think there is a re-exam. Since you have MC, the school will excuse her for the exam and she can try the paper as a practice paper when she gets better.

Hope she recovers soon.

As long as she has a valid MC, she is fine and she should rest at home. The school may:
- Get her to sit for the same paper or a different paper at a later date
- Or base her grade on her last 3 terms' grade

Take good care of her.

Hi Nihauma, thanks for the reply, but because it is SA2, I am worried that they might not let her take it if she miss it :(

Hi ChiefKiasu, my girl did not do so well for HCL the last 3 terms, so the exam paper is quite important to her and she really worked hard the past few months for it, this why I worried that school might just not her take the paper at all :(

In my dd's school, there is no re-exam. What level is your girl in now? What is the consequence of not taking this exam or has a not so good grade in HMT?

If her state now, will she do better than last 3 terms?

I understand. Why don't you call the teacher first thing in the morning to work it out? Or drop the teacher an e mail now? If you are lucky you may get a reply to ease your mind.

What's her level? School grades aren't really that important, but they do determine which class she gets to go to next year. If you are really concerned that she should at least at to stay in the same class, talk to the form teacher to find out if that is the case.

At this time, just help her relax and get over her illness. That is way more important than any exam.
