is the term "make-up exams" used in the States to refer to the exams in which a student compensates for failure in the final exams? what terms do people use in Britain or other English-speaking countries?

In the US, you take a make-up text because you couldn't be in school the day it was given. You were home sick, you had a family emergency, etc.

If you're doing poorly in a class, sometimes you can do "extra credit" to help compensate for poor test scores. But if you fail the final, you repeat the class.

Why text and not test 2G? Was that a typo?

I believe it was a typo; I live in the US and I have never heard of a "make-up text."

However, Grammar Geek is correct: in the US make-up work is what you are given when you are absent.

Something you may say to your teacher if you missed class the day before: "May I have my make-up work, please?"
Thank you for your explanation Tattered, you took me out of doubt, and welcome to the EF!

Whoops. Typo. Sorry for the resulting confusion. TEST not TEXT.

Never mind GG (or 2G?). We all make mistakes every now and then. Emotion: big smile

How about G^2. Seems even geekier.
You mean G²? Why not G³ then? That's even geekier, if possible. Emotion: big smile
