Depression is a a difficult thing to go through. One often does not know when it hits them and can take a while to figure out you'd need help.

In your case, I would strongly suggest seeing a doctor and talking about your circumstance. A doctors letter is vital for any form of application, so make that a priority.

Also, just wanted to tell you, if at all you do need to take a year off to retake exams, you'd be more thankful for it later on in your life. Depression is best dealt with sooner rather than later.

Best wishes, don't lose hope. Anything is possible.

Not always. GPs can diagnose depression and some will give medication for it at the firat appointment. Mental health issues should be handled by specialists but the reality is the waiting lists are so long all the GPs I've met have been willing to start treatment since waiting without any treatment isn't always safe for the person involved. I was diagnosed with depression in november during a 5 minute appointment and im not waiting for/ receiving any specialist care.

Oh...maybe its just where I am then but it's a lengthy process and took ages for me. I also know a friend in Nottingham had the same problem, took two and a half weeks for her to get a diagnosis due to the mental health centre changing her appointment loads. Didn't know that!

Aah i sat the exam! and it didn't go well at all...i could rembember only a few points for each essay question but even those weren't really relvant....I can't beleive i went from being a high achiever to this...I phoned the therapist today for an appointment i just hope they can help me somehow overcome this because i've had this issue for a l LONG time.gonna have a long rant now you don't have to read if you dont want to...

So I was thinking why i'm getting these intense depressive feeling, iI think it gets worse because i've lost contact with all my friends due to depression and can find it hard to make new ones due to my miserable mood most of the time. i think people think i'm being rude when really i'm just kinda depressed and insecure .Just haven't had a decent friendship in a long time, most people seem like they're happy with the firends they got,i just wanna meet someone like me!I'm really bad at keeping friendships sometimes because i start thinking they dont really like me ahh i miss the days when i use to just have fun with my friends and i used to have high aspiration in my education, really can't believe whats happeneing to my life at the moment.

Does your university have a counselling service that you could use? It probably varies from place to place but if you have been to see them about issues such as depression (whether you have been diagnosed by a doctor or not) then they are usually able to confirm to the university that you have valid mitigating circumstances.

If you aren't going to sit the exam in the morning then you should definitely apply for mitigating circumstances before the exam starts (you could tell them that you will submit any supporting evidence that they require as soon your GP/therapist is able to provide you with it)
yh i went to 1 coounselling session it was kinda helpful but i didn't go regularly like when my moods are up i think whats the point going, even though the problem really isnt solved
