I took Cell and Molecular Biology with a friend this semester. She unfortunately got strep throat a day or two before the final. Although she emailed the professor and had proof of a doctors note, she was still not allowed to take the final exam. As a result, she has to enroll again and retake the whole class next semester. It depends on the professor. Some, even under whatever crazy situation you're going through will absolutely not allow a make up exam. And by signing the syllabus, you agree to the terms. It sucks.

An "almost" doctor would have FAR mote knowledge about diseases and most medical things, so I would trust their word over some random guys. Btw, why didn't she just give you another answer sheet?

Haven't you guys ever taken a written exam? Just writing non-stop for the hour? You would almost certainly not have enough time to finish. I wouldn't want to rule out something like that.

Too many negative votes, comment buried. Show the comment

Getting someone sick will last a few days to a month max. Missing an exam and failing (which is possible considering how terribly anal some teachers are about tests) will last for the next year, when you have to re-take the class.

Hi, I'm from the LPP (Lame Pun Police). You have been charged with using a class 4 pun - "unintentional and ridiculously lame." You have the right to remain silent... No, in fact, you must remain silent or I will beat your shins with this salmon. Yes, the bra and panties I'm wearing are a part of my uniform, so don't bother to inquire about them.
