I am attending an EFL exam and I need to ask the examiners for a note which is proof of my having attended the exam. I'd like to ask for it in English (), but I'm not sure how to do it.
I've done some research, and 'certificate of attendance' seems to certify not just attendance to an exam, but to a whole course. Am I right? I think so. "Certificate of Attendance" also seems very formal. If so, how would you call the thing I want to get? Why not just ask for a note "attesting to" your presence at the exam?
And while I'm at it...
how does 'call-roll' collocate? The teacher does the call-roll or the teacher calls roll? The teacher calls the roll.
And if I do not attend a lesson, what do I have: a miss or a fault or a tardy? An absence.
And if you bring a sick note to the teacher, do you say justify a fault/miss/tardy?
I would say "to explain an absence."
PS- the correct preposition is "at." Attendance at an exam.
