to get out of an exam because I really don't think I can do it.

I've got an assessment day and interview for a job this week so was also wondering the same as I'm a little scared about the whole prospect of getting a job after 5 years as a SAHM grin

yeah, why not, but you do realise that you will actually catch swine flu as punishment, probably when you have to sit the exam next time wink

that's what would happen to me, anyway

true Yappy, you could be tempting fate <<serious face>>

it will come back and bite you in the bum.. well it would if you were me

yappybluedog Mon 20-Jul-09 11:45:04

I'd still do it though grin

hmm how could i explain really getting it a week later? and would they make me do the exam anyway?

should i just jack it in and go back to what i used to do?

it is just too hard.

If you fake pig flu, fate will deliver it to you, 10 times nastier at exactly the time your exam has been rescheduled for. So I'd go for the Dead Grandma excuse if I were you. Unless you've buried 5 of them already...

Seriously, speak to your tutor. There's no way that you should have reached this stage of your course so unsure of your ability to do the exam. Are you sure it isn't just nerves?

just a thought, but wouldnt you have to provide a dr's note as proof of extenuating circumstances or whatever, to prove that that you were ill?

I think that swine flu is now wholly self-certificating - hence the statistics now being completely meaningless!!

EccentricaGallumbits Mon 20-Jul-09 14:38:46

an assessment of memory, rather than an assessment of knowledge and ability is the wrong way.

I will be telling them this in the evaluation.

Blimey - I made a discussion of the day. I may be about to fail a very important exam but this is the pinnical of my MN career.

What would happen if you failed the exam?

EccentricaGallumbits Mon 20-Jul-09 16:31:21

I'd have to pay back my fees and bursary and go back to bloody nursing.

yappybluedog Mon 20-Jul-09 16:33:54

if you fail you could say you were incubating the SF virus and therefore didn't perform as well as you should have hmm

I think yappybluedog has the answer. Good luck with it.

Go do the exam. Bet you pass.

(Don't temp fate with the swine flu idea).

Good luck.
