    Had my first exam in one of my modules today. I left the room with a huge grin as I've failed this class twice and I thought I'd done really well this time around. I got a D. Can't believe it. I really thought I'd got it this time. Getting all kinds of horrible thoughts and the voices are finding this hilarious making me feel even more stupid and pathetic.
    a d's still a pass though, for degree level at least??

    No I haven't. I don't have a personal tutor and I don't even know what to say to the disability services. I just don't know where to start or what they could do to help me anyway.


    I just had another test (in a different module) and the questions required a lot of thought but the voices were laughing and shouting the whole time so I'm sure I've failed that one too.
    Sorry delay was being dopey and didn't log in on the computer to check notifications.

    Make an appointment with them and start with saying you need more support because at the moment you're struggling. They'll ask you more questions and just fill them in just make them pay attention and offer options basically

    Don't worry it must be so difficult to do an exam with that going on in your head, sounds really taxing no wonder you're not achieving the grades you want :hugs: but I'm sure you can if people recognise your problems and add that extra support into the equation

    CPN has agreed to a meds increase. He will talk about it with my useless psychiatrist, who I see this coming Thursday.

    i also did my over the phone pip application today. I think she is going to send me a form to fill in. it should be alright though, because i have a medical history, thus my notes will be rammed.

    I know it's hypocritical of me, but are sure you should have stopped the clozapine?

    My advice would be to tell your CPN not just how you feel but also about stopping.
    Could you call your local crisis team if struggling?

    No, a D is a fail. Not only that but in order for me to do the compulsory module that follows this one I need at least a C but "preferably" a B.

    What have people been saying to you? If they're being offensive or trolling you can report them. :console:

    Thank you for the advice, LP. I will send them an email to set up an appointment. There's no DSA here so I have no idea what kind of support they can offer but I guess I won't know unless I ask. I do feel kind of guilty about it though - there was this girl in an electronic wheelchair today and it's just like, she's coping I'm not, why am I so pathetic? I dunno, I'll email them but I'm not optimistic.

    Hope you're doing ok.

    Saber, your problems are just as important as someone with physical disabilities. :hugs: You're not pathetic at all, I think it's brilliant how you've returned to uni to study.

    Most of my grades were ds, so i think i do know what i am talking about. You must be talking about a level, where i think a d is a fail.

    PS it doesn't matter about me, thanks for asking though. I was talking about having some of my conversations stopped.

    here is proof about the d (40-49%): Maybe you haven't reached degree level yet?

    A D at A level is still a pass. Sabertooth is in the US; so it's probably different there.
