By the way, some teachers don't just "deliver education to the expected level". What an insulting phrase!

We teach our subjects, which we know and love, to students with whom we engage and strive to know. We seek to learn from them, to encourage and explore. The tests they sit along the way are at best a way of focusing them on certain aspects of the curriculum and at worst a distraction from learning.

How about coming up with some coping strategies rather than just pulling him out.

Rather than helping him address the issue and work through it, pulling him out is a bit of a cop out a lazy way out.

I work in CAMHS and have seen kids who have horrendous issues with anxiety and depression still have to sit their exams, it's really not easy to get any type of special dispensation.

What about his driving test, a levels, gcses, job interviews etc, you have to address this now rather than putting it off or next time he will expect you to do the same.
