If you're feeling sick prior to starting your exam, do not attend your exam as you may not be eligible to apply for special consideration. Consult a medical practitioner as soon as possible and apply for special consideration - your application must include a current and relevant medical certificate.
 
If you become ill during your exam, you must notify an examination supervisor in the venue. You do this by staying in your seat and raising your hand. The supervisor will collect your exam and permit you to leave the exam. Consult a medical practitioner as soon as you can and apply for special consideration - your application must include a current and relevant medical certificate obtained on the day of the exam.
