    I'm a first year at Uni of Notts and I missed my exam this morning because I overslept... What do I do? I'm going to fail this module (100% exam) so will have to resit in August and can't get higher than a pass!

    Hypothetically speaking, if I could obtain a doctor's note and say I was ill and therefore had extenuating circumstances - I would be able to resit and get a higher mark. What would happen if I didn't give a reason and just continued? Someone help me please

    Doubtful. Think you're just gonna have to suck it up and resit and get 40% (if you pass). I would talk to your lecturer/personal tutor but that's all you can do tbh

    Don't cheat, just take the pass.
    You're lucky it's only first year; just actually put enough work in to do well enough to get through and apply for stuff.

    And never do something so stupid as being 'nocturnal' before an exam.....

    I'd just accept it and go for the 40% capped resit, it's only first year so it won't make any difference.
