Aegrotat

Aegrotat

[ee-groh-tat, ee-groh-tat]
Aegrotat (he is sick) is a medical certificate of illness excusing student's sickness. The term is used primarily in the United Kingdom and Commonwealth, and then only in the context of degrees and courses considered as passed by a student too ill to finish the appropriate material. Aegrotat is the only surviving remnant in English of the Latin verb aegrotare (fall ill, make ill).
