    Had depression and anxiety issues in my final year engineering, doubting I will get a 2.1 I was averaging last year with this year being worth 80% of my degree.

    I'm in Scotland so I have 2 choices really -

    1. Continue write 5 exams in 3 weeks take what I get degree class wise
    2. Suspend studies, take an ordinary Scottish degree and return next year, having to reapply for a tier 4 visa and paying to support myself again (fees will be reimbursed).

    Option 2 carries the risk of financial problems stopping me from ever returning, whereas option 1 carries the risk of me getting my degree albeit a lower class (2.2 if i'm lucky right now) that may limit my career or postgrad opportunities.

    Any advice

    What does option 2 get you? the chance to resit all your exams?

    Option 2 means I get semester 2 again, same modules in attendance from Jan - April redoing exams. I wouldn't take my exams this year, rather 'defer; them to this time next year.
