Terrible grade - not what I expected :( Watch

Hi all. I am in my second year at uni and finding it difficult! It doesnt help the fact that I am also pregnant so I am really feeling the pressure. I havent been to uni for nearly a whole month and just relying on reading the guidance. However the tutor for this particular assignment is absolutely useless regardless, her teaching method is awful and most of the class agrees. We even raised the issue with student rep! Anyway I tried really hard on the assignment and followed the guidelines to a T. At the moment I am getting B grades but today I got a D for this! I dont know what to think to be honest. I just cannot believe it. I know I probably have no grounds to appeal but does this mean I am likely to get a 2:2 in my dissertation? I am feeling really low at the moment.
There will almost certainly be somebody in your department who is designated to talk to students about hardships they are facing and to help them take meaningful steps forward. I would suggest talking through with them what the implications of this grade will be as without knowing your exact situation, and the exact departmental/university guidelines I cannot help you nearly as well as they can.
Best of luck.
does your uni offer daycare? that would be ideal for when the baby is there.

If you have a really poor lecturer, then as a group you need to contact the student rep and make the complaint as a group. If some others are not complaining and getting high marks, then it weakens your case.
If you have been diagnosed with soemthing by the GP, then maybe, but it depends.

No idea if its because you are pregnant, but would you be missing all the other lectures as well? Sorry if am being dense, just distracted.
Btw raising the issue with the student rep is going to affect nobody, unless the student rep raises it formally with the department.
Hang in there and if you dont know what to do make them help you (within acceptable limits), dont suffer in silence. you are the one paying them.
Hang in there.
