    So I have depression, it sucks I can't sleep I feel helpless and unmotivated it seems like I'm in an uncontrollable downwards spiral.
    I hate my life and want to be happy normal and content but I can't .

    In my third year and the pressure is killing me, I literally have panic attacks whilst revising.

    My doctor has diagnosed me with depression and given me a letter and medication.do you guys think I can claim extenuating circumstances because I'm scared they'll think I made it up, because I got the diagnosis after my exam.

    Well if you have a doctor's letter, you could apply for extenuating circumstances.

    It depends on your university's policies though - it's possible that it would have to have been submitted before the exams.
