    Hi I'm really stressing out, in fact crying right now, last November I had to go abroad because my grandma passed away and I ended missing two university deadlines, I applied for a extension and got one till the 13th of April (TODAY!!!) unfortunately I pay attention and I thought the deadline was for next month (I know I blame myself), I haven't got enough time to submit my work, I'm wondering what's the worst that will happen if I don't (PS I attend Newman University in Birmingham)

    Two choices

    At least you haven't missed the deadline so you can either

    1. Submit what you have got or

    2. Go to them and tell them you wrote down the wrong date and work like heck to get it done by a certain date that you have agreed with them

    It does not bode well for you missing deadlines all the time and you should not be leaving things to the last minute.

    The alternative thing you could do is repeat a year

    I think i'll have to* arrange a meeting with the student board, and perhaps repeat a year, the thing I most am afraid of is getting kicked out of uni

    Listen - in the big scheme of things getting kicked out of uni is not the end of the world. TBH you don't sound as if you really enjoy your course that much because otherwise you would have been more "aware" of this deadline.

    If you do leave - give it a couple of years of work and then return to a new course and a new uni. ( Fresh start and all that.)
