Student or Learner
I am confused between these two words "make up" and "makeup". Supposed on the day of the test, I didn't show up to take the test with my class. The next day I returned to school and I wanted to take the test that I missed from the other day. So how do I say to the teacher?
Please help me.

make up, vb. to do something because you did not have the opportunity to do it previously.
Ex: I want to make up the test. <verb>
Ex: I want a make-up test. <adjective>
Ex: No students will be given the chance to make up a make-up test.
