    supposed to

    If I got a feeling (that) I didn't do well on the exam but the official results haven't come through yet, could I say "I might well be supposed to take an exam once again.'' Correct? Would it sound a bit "artificial"?

    Well, I'm not sure that "artificial" is an appropriate description. But I would delete "well be supposed to" and say, for example, "I might be expected to take....." or "I might be required to take....." or "I expect to take......."
