    where to start?

    I'm studying on a pretty intense course, in the past two years i've been home 3 times due to long placements over the entire summer which require alot of additional work in my 'spare' time. So I'm now in my final year and everything has gotten alot worse. I've had 7 assessments in the course of 2 months and now i'm expected to complete 3 x 3 hour exams in 9 days... i have spent the past two weeks, including christmas (the only time we 'get off' before completing a 6 month placement plus dissertation & 2 massive portfolios) by myself trying to revise but nothings going in.

    I'm constantly upset, cannot concentrate, feel worthless, have noone to talk to and can't be bothered to do anything. Even brushing my teeth is an effort. I hate myself and I don't even know why. I've been feeling this way for the past 2 months

    I want to go to the doctors as I'm pretty sure i'm suffering with depression but would i be able to get a doctors note straight away? or would I have to wait? I know 100% i'm unable to do these exams so this is why I would need a letter quickly to claim EC or would I still have to complete them?

    I'm sorry for the messiness of this post but i have no idea who to talk to! my university is pretty ****

    Speak to your tutor, apply for extenuating circ. Make an appt with your doctor, so you can use the letter from them as evidence.

    Edit: also, book an appointment with a uni counsellor. Might help to have someone to talk to
