Getting Sick During a Test
What happens if you suddenly get sick during a test? Sickness in this case refers to something that prevents you from continuing with the test (e.g. vomiting).
Here’s what you should do:
- Put your paper on your desk and go to the proctor. Ask if you can be excused from the test for a few minutes to see if you relieve your sickness.
- If your sickness persists, see if your proctor will excuse you from the test. Before you leave the exam, make plans to retake the exam.
If the sickness is something like a migraine headache, you will probably need to continue the exam.
Should you have a medical condition such as seizures that are triggered by stress, you should notify your teacher in advance. You might be able to take the test in a less stressful environment.
