deferring uni exams due to anxiety Watch

    Hi

    I have had problem with anxiety and panic attacks for about two years, i was treated at the time with SSRIs and slowly managed to get off meds and learned to deal with it on my own.

    In the last few months the anxiety has been flaring up especially in the past few weeks It is been impossible to do anything because of it. I decided to go to see a doctor he has given me diazepam and propranolol to start with and referral to CBT.
    He also gave me a prescription for SSRIs incase the propranolol is not helping.

    I have exams next week which I am thinking about deferring. I'm worried that uni won't accept anxiety as mitigating circumstance? Any advice would be appreciated

    Best thing to do is get in contact with your SU and your course leader to discuss your options. Mitigating circumstances vary from uni to uni :hugs:
