    Go to your student union and talk to an advisor or talk to your personal tutor.
    You also need to read the rules and consider whether you cna appeal your grade by putting in a claim for extenuating or mitigating circumstances. The rules are normally available from the website.

    They normally only allow anything if its unforseen. Anything medical where you have ebidence and a reference from a GP or counselor may help. Its not just an opportunity to resut the exam for better grades.

    Just doing poorly on exams is not good enough.
