lol, how great would it be if the mugger went and took the test using your ID and purposely failed it just to screw you over even more?
Actually, if he was mugged he can probably take a make-up exam on another day. It may be a harder exam though, so it still sucks. Anyway, if the mugger had taken the test and failed it on purpose, OP would have had a harder time getting permission to do a make-up exam.
You should have whipped out a bill and said, "Listen, Mr. Washington here thinks you should let me in", and wink and put it in his pocket. Aw crap its from the UK, I didn't realize. I DON'T KNOW THEIR DAMN MONETARY SYSTEM.
And Mr. Washington would get you laughed at! Mr. Lincoln or Mr. Hamilton might get you past a poor student monitor. Mr. Jackson or Mr. Grant would get you in past a university employee. Mr. Franklin would get you an A on the test! YDI for not going to the police and filing a report. Once you have a case number, you go to your professor and ask to make up the exam and show him your excuse. You should never have to take a test after being the victim of a violent crime (even if it was only the threat of violence that parted you from your wallet).
You have a point about not taking an exam after a violent crime. I'd extend that to any kind of extremely stressful event (I can imagine a lot... Even witnessing an accident or crime could cause enough stress to do poorly on an exam). However, universities often under-estimate stress. I heard in Canada the highest suicide rate is among university students, but universities and the government do what they can to make this not too noticeable. Don't know if that's true though, but I'd like to know if someone can confirm it.
Honestly, if that happened to me, I would already be freaking out about the exam. And if I had everything stolen from me, I would have been worrying about the exam. The police would come later. I'm not sure if the OP and I had a normal response though. I would still try to make the exam. And if it's a board exam, there are no make-ups. You would have to wait until at least the next year.
And since you ran to the exam instead of filing a police report, you don't have any proof you were mugged. I don't know if you deserved it for expecting University staff to act like human beings instead of robots or if your life is truly fucked.
yeah, I took an exam recently at my local uni (for schooling purposes) three kids had hiptops sitting on their desks, and the exam supervisor didn't give a shit (then again, this same supervisor let me take exam revision notes and look through them while in the middle of the exam)
