You might all be aware of this already but it was news to me. Children who have a parent with a terminal cancer prognosis are recognised by exam boards that their exam performance is likely to be impacted by events at home, so there's a general 5% allowance made in any exams they are sitting. It's not much but it is something. You can find the details at www.childhoodbereavementnetwork.org.uk/media/23435/CBN-special-exam-consideration-briefing.pdf
This is very interesting to know, thank you for sharing perignon. It is not applicable to me personally but I can now share the information should the need ever arise.
I guess I knew this
my dad died the morning of one of my exams
5% isn't enough
I sat and stared into space for at least half the exam
50% is more realistic
thanks for the reminder
