    I had the numeracy skills test booked for tomorrow but I was panicking this morning after I failed all the practising tests I was doing, so I just booked it again for thursday... I am so nervous about this... I bought books and online tests to practise but I only had one week to prepare... do you think a few more days is enough? I feel that it's pointless to rush this test because the university decided that the deadline is until next week to have everything sorted out... I don't feel prepared at all and I think it's stupid to lose one opportunity just because I can't do this for example in August... Considering that the programme starts in september, it would be fair to let me prepare for one or two weeks more... but I don't think they would agree with this :/ Did anyone asked to extend this deadline? I've heard that some people just do these tests days before starting the programme... do you think that is ok to ask them for more time?

    thank you

    Just ring them up and ask for the deadline to be extended. You're overthinking this.
