    So my history cw was due in on Friday (internal deadline) and I still haven't handed it in. It's been something I've really found hard and it's stressing me out so much. Is my teacher really allowed to refuse to mark it/withdraw it?? Also I've been struggling a lot with depression and anxiety and my doctor has called in to tell my college, which has got them off my back a little bit, but I don't know if this counts as mitigating circumstances? Someone please tell me if this means I'll get an automatic fail because I'm panicking so much

    If your GP has supported you, then it could be taken into account. You would need to talk to your exam officer who knows the rules about how much discretion they have with assessment deadlines.


    You should have sought help earlier. Have they given you a new deadline? Maybe its something a parent could contact them about? How far are you near completing?

    If nobody answers then I will try and look up the special consideration rules for coursework assessments.

    Someone like Compost, or Muttley will know.
