Too much to deal with. I'm going to fail my exams.

    I recently found out my grandmother has been diagnosed with terminal cancer and won't see this year out. My other grandmother had just been taken to hospital on the grounds of something serious - she's in her late 80s. A friend of mine tried to commit suicide the day before yesterday.

    On top of that I've had 2 exams that went terribly and the rest start tomorrow. I haven't been concentrating on revision at all.

    I'm such a mess.
    I don't know what to do.

    Edit: I'm in my second year of a degree.

    You can pull through this. Think positive thoughts, and park for the moment all the crap going on in your life. It's the only way to get through your exams. Just remember, that the way you're feeling is TEMPORARY - you won't always feel like this - things will be better, so focus on that. Get sleep, and just revise for those exams.

    Notify your tutor and see whether it's too late to fill out some kinda extenuating circumstances. Unis have different policies on this and so maybe there's some way to take it into account, even if retrospectively :console:

    I've had a pretty rough year too, you can pull through, I'm pretty sure I've managed it. Think positively and get through the exams, focus on revision and nothing else. If you feel like you can't then contact your advisor of studies straight away (if you have one/similar person) and ensure they know you aren't just outright failing because of lazyness/lack of knowledge. Then maybe you can get extenuating circumstances and sit the exams at another time?
    Hope it works out for you!
