Repeating language module- criteria?

    Hi,
    I missed a language exam this morning as I'm ill. I'm going to the doctor as soon as I can move again, I think that I caught a virus.

    I have looked at the book of modules for this module and it doesn't have information regarding repeating. It states the following:

    "Requirements for Supplemental Examination: Marks in passed element(s) of Continuous Assessment are carried forward, Failed element(s) of Continuous Assessment must be repeated (as prescribed by the Department.)."

    From others knowledge and experience, when does supplemental examination occur, is it August like the other modules, or do the departments arrange exam so it could be held this weekend?

    If it is any relevance the exam was first year French. Any one have experience similar to this regarding illness and missing a exam?
    (worth the majority of the module, missing it means a fail.)

    I will inform my professor once I have a doctors note, and I'm sure he will be annoyed to hear this if it means he had to re arrange the exam again like at the weekend or something.

    Thanks in advance for any information on the procedure regarding missing language exams.
