feeling good about life right now
or totes spoon out and do a Paula Radcliffe?
Can you re-sit if it's the latter?
It's not the end of the world. You should get smashed somewhere.
My answer for the first question was good I would've got a 2:1 in that exam fucking easy that's all i needed for a first but I'm just a twat aren't I. Fucking haven't taken anti-depressants for a week suddenly feel completely helpless even though I knew how to answer the question I just though can't do this and then it was 50 minutes in and I'd answered like a third of one question and i needed to do another one so I just thought fuck it and left. Argrfirqehglerqhgiurwhg. Sorry yeah rubbish thread I'm a dick I just don't really have anyone to talk to irl about it so i'm posting it on here like a loser so shut up cheers.
This is about the point people drop out isnt it. Yeah.
if you've got an allocated lecturer/adviser of studies go and speak to them asap, explain what happened and try and have the exam discounted on medical grounds.
if this doesn't work you should also have an appeal's process whereby you could appeal to resit the exam (assuming this is an honours exam so you might not automatically have this right).
but as said above, chin up it hopefully won't fuck you :)
50 minutes is unimpressively late.
I wanted to watch France vs Uruguay in the 2002 World Cup and I figured I'd done well enough.
I failed so badly it brought my course average down far enough that I had to resit all of my exams three months later.
Chin up and ignore me!
I like your posts. Not the original one in this thread 'cos it's obviously not great news, but I think you're good. I hope this helps in some way.
I smiled a bit. So thanks and that.
So do you think you did well or was the crushing despair of ti all too much?
probably why i failed
i'm posting too much in this thread gonna leave it there for the sake of my dignity
but we are. i promise. i have your back. even if it seems like tough love.
Your life doesnt have people going to war over gems or getting your hand bitten off by a wolf. Ignore this post
but i'm supposed to be sad so i can't post an emoticon or say haha sorry.
If you are still feeling sad Friday tell me and we will go out and watch a gig, then go to a house party where I can set you up with one of those hot chicks we saw last time. I wont cockblock you with silmarillion talk, I promise
lets take them larping
ive never been larping
Didn't realise that two of my modules were combined into one exam, only revised one for of them. Spent an hour answering the first bit then walked out (it was a 3 hour exam) and met my mate who had done the exact same thing in the pub.
Managed to get a tolerated fail in that module
<sensible practical head> Can you speak to your tutor and explain that you were feeling a bit poorly? Maybe you can also think about taking those pills again or go see your doctor if there's a reason why you don't want to take them? anyway, i know you didn't ask for advice, so sorry for wading in. I hope you feel better soon x
As others have said, it's not the end of the world.
If I were you, I'd go home and have a nice night doing something you enjoy and then contact your student support people in the morning for advice, perhaps then contact the course admin/course leader.
Unis tend to be sympathetic towards stress and mental health issues these days so I'm sure if you explain then it'll be resolvable.
still i'm pretty fucking miserable about it. exams are like my thing. i don't even have a fucking thing anymore except being a knob. Dunno how i'm gonna do my next one, probably just wont turn up.
2hrs. got to 1hr30 and realised I'd only answered two of four questions. ended up doing 3.5. if I pass it'll be a miracle. h8 u Construction Technology
so, August DiS resists club?
Pish yerself. Then they would have asked you to leave but you could argue it was against your will and you were totally nailing it up until then. Is there any way you can go back in there and pish yerself?
Chin up, Teddy. Send me a PM if you want. Don't want though.
at least you left (although that pissing yourself idea sounds genius)
i sat for all 3 hours of my first contract law exam in which i put down one sentence for each of the four questions and then looked out the window for the next 2hr50 minutes
all i've got is an anecdote of questionable interestingness.
i took a second year exam. failed. re-took. failed. re-re-took. failed again. even the aggregate score was less than 40%. the thing is, i was actually really trying, pretty hard, with hours of revision, for at least two of the attempts (the other one was last chance saloon, and i had to go all out on making sure i passed another course, so i could stay on the course).
on one of the occasions i could do little more than draw a shitty triangular diagram. that was it. didn't even properly understand what the questions were asking, for the most part. sat there, done and dusted, after five minutes. had to wait another 25 until i was allowed to leave. the invigilator thought i was tacking the mickey.
the only consolation was that during revision for a re-take, i showed a mock paper to a chartered engineer, and he looked at it, aghast. which made me feel marginally less thick. on the other hand, some right spoons managed to sneak through somehow, and said that the third year level stuff was pretty easy.
whetever. everything was dandy in the end. so feck level 2 structures. feck it right in the eye. didn't even want the (Hons) bit of my degree anyway.
you're going to need a letter from a doctor and possibly from a counsellor to back that up. These aren't hard to get so don't worry yourself. You will probably be able to take it as a first sitting in August. I'm doing an exam on Wednesday that I was meant to do a year ago. Don't worry :)
you should definitely explain it all to your tutor or something and get a resit due to extenuating circumstances,if these are january exams there are still summer ones right? they could write you a paper for the summer so you can still graduate in time. talk about it to them as soon as possible and you can get drs notes and stuff about the antidepressants. and if youve done well in a bit that shows you arent one of those people who shouldnt be there and know nothing, thats something in your favour. hope it works out!
