    Hi.

    Over the past few weeks, I have had some nights where I keep going to the loo and therefore have little sleep. I have gone to the doctors about it and am awaiting results from a urinary sample.

    Should I apply for special consideration (if so, who do I ask)? I'm really kicking myself as I thought the C4 paper was pretty decent (I usually flourish at Core anyway), but I couldn't properly focus. Or should I just man up, accept that it's beyond my control and re-sit next year (in year 12 atm).

    I really wanted to get above 90 UMS on this... (my aspiration is to go to Warwick to study Mathematics..)

    You really need to have proper medical evidence to apply for special consideration, as saying you haven't had much sleep is not gonna help you in any way. You need to chase up your doctors and try and get some form of diagnosis ext and then provide this evidence to your exams officer. You need to contact your exams officer and let them know whats going on and they'd be able to help you.

    You need to remember you're in year 12 and not getting 90ums really isn't the end of the world !
