    I am in my 3rd at uni doing biomedical science, I have been good the past two years but this term I havent been attending my lectures. I have been havinf infections and bad colds and flu and been ill for the last few months, I have recently found out at the doctors that I have an underlying liver function disorder which has been affecting my immune system resulting in me getting ill more frequently. I have also been having probblems with depression which is now finally being dealt with at the doctors. Even though I havent been turning up to lectures I have still been doing all my courseworks sending them in . I was wondering if theres any point in doing my exams in 6 weeks or maybe I should not bother and try to repeat or something.
    Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated
    thanx

    you're not alone, i simply can not learn from lectures and prefer to sit down with the text book and lecture slides to teach myself

    done this for the last 4 years and i'm doing well (on for good 2:1) as far as i know the majority of my class learn this way

    i'd say get your head down and go for it mate

    I miss most of my classical literature lectures and tbh, I dont care. When I attend the lectures I end up feeling overwhelmed/stupid just because I didnt do the pre-lecture reading. yet when I sit down and read up on it myself (this is when I dont attend the lecture) I feel I understand everything that is on the slides the lecturer posts on the internet anyway. I actually take it in, yet the class is fairly small and I don't want to be pulled up for bad attendance... well she hasn't done so yet. So might as well not go today either. I have to pick up a paper which has been marked, so I will go do that instead.
