Sorry for writing such a long post, I'm really worried right now...
I am currently in my second year of a 4 year degree and I am waiting for my exam results. Managed to get a 1st in year one but this year was a disaster and I think that I might fail 3 exams due to depression, which means I will have to repeat these 3 courses next year. I started feeling extremely sad at the beginning of the academic year but it only got worse in the 2nd term: couldn't concentrate, cried a lot, couldn't sleep,eat, got headaches, started moving and thinking in slow motion, missed many classes , my grades started to drop from 8,9, 10 to 2,3,4 and sometimes 0 because I didn't always manage to do the homework...it was awful..I only feel like I'm completely back to normal now. I went to see my GP and she recommended counseling ..however I didn't really tell her everything because my parents convinced me that if I have more than a mild depression nobody will ever hire me / love me etc ) and I didn't talk to my tutor either so I couldn't apply for extenuating circumstances since you need to have at least a moderate episode in order to apply.
My question is: if I end up repeating a year without having any extenuating circumstances, so no way to explain why I failed , will I be able to get an internship afterwards? How will this affect my employment prospects? would love to work in asset management, risk or technology but those internships are very competitive....I'm really worried ...
Thank you for reading this.
