I just went to my GP for depression extending my dissertation for one week , but i dont think that this will help me finish it due to my situation, i didn't want to contact the uni about this because it was really hard for me to admit and i wanted to push thought my final year(i'm studying in Scotland) my only option is maybe deliver and hope i pass or just quit. They won't allow me to do it again i must have at least a grade of E in my final report to do it again in the summer. What should i do?

I'm not sure what you wrote makes sense.


1. You have been to the GP about depression and asking for a sick note to extend your essay for an extra week?

2. You wont or havent contacted the UNi?

If I was in that situation I would fo to my GP and explain the depression and what impact it was having on me and my ability to study. I would tell them I was mistaken in asking for just a week, but was going to put in a request to have an extension to submit my dissertation alter in the summer when I could get on top of the depression. The week I had asked for earlier was insufficient and you realise its not something that is going to go away straight away. Ask him to change the note to reflect that.


I would then use this and talk to your tutor or a student advisor . the aim would be to put in an extenuating circumstances claim to submit the dissertation after the exams or later in the summer. i.e you need a lot longer than a week.

You have nothing to lose and putting in something sub standard now if you have been hampered by depression would be foolish if theres a chance you can get the extension. A low mark could have a significant impact on your degree, so it makes sense to give it a try. Other people will be.
