    I am worried that I may fail because of my severe anxiety. Because of it, I am pretty much constantly on edge and unwell, and missing classes/keep handing in coursework late because of it. Despite handing it in late, I am still getting respectable marks (usually around 50-60%). If I do well in my last two essays and exams, do you think they'll let me progress?

    Each university has different policies on progression. The best option would be to speak to your personal tutor about it.

    Yeah, I am. I think I'm panicking because I've heard horror stories about people being kicked out, or rather 'advised to leave' due to something called 'lack of engagement', and am concerned they'll tell me I can't progress due to this. I'm hoping they'll just go based on my grades, but I'm unsure.

    well if your acheiving the grades im pretty sure theyd see this as engagement.
    if you wasnt engaging, its very unlikely youd make them grades
    i wouldnt worry about it, if youv passed everything so far then your on track to pass first year

    have they mentioned there worried or have they raised concerns about attendance, or engagement?

    Yeah, I had a meeting with my personal tutor to discuss my attendance, but it was more that she was concerned, rather than giving me a warning. I have made her aware of the situation, and am doing all I can to rectify things (i.e seeing Academic support tomorrow, going to my GP regularly).
