Hi,

Peter failed in his final math test last semester. In the beginning of this semester, He has a chance to make up for the test. He can take a test. If he passes the test this time, the school will change the result of his final math test last semester from "failure" to "pass".

Can I say "He has a chance to make up for the final math test he failed last semester"?

John missed the English quiz last Monday, because he was sick that day. Today he can take a quiz for the quiz he missed last Monday. If he can pass the quiz, his teacher would consider him as passing the quiz for last Monday.

Can I say "He can make up for the quiz he missed last Monday"?

Is it the normal way to express this idea?

Thank you very much.

    1) This sentence sounds too long for me; I think that by saying he’ll be making up for a test is enough to show that he failed it last time: “He has a chance to make up for his last maths test.” or “He has a chance to make up for the last maths test he did”
    2) I think this one is okay.
    I would like to say these sentences don’t sound very natural to me, and if they are, I don’t know them because I didn’t have any reason to use them :D .
