I've been struggling quite badly with my mental health this year. Last term not so much but I did not do as well as I could have; this term I have missed almost everything including assessment deadlines.
My department wants to help although I haven't officially gone to them yet to request anything (someone submitted a statement of concern for me last term), so in terms of attendance requirements I can sort things out. For assessments a lot of them are capped at 0 but still need completing - I may be able to get an extension or condoned late submission for some of them. I can pass 2nd year from the ones I still need to do & exams etc (if I assume a mark of 40 on everything left, I get 44 overall; if I aim for 60 that'd get me a 2:2 and I should be capable of that. To get a 2:1 though I essentially need a first on everything that's left). But then I would have to use 3rd year to make up for that as I want a 2:1 overall.
Should I interrupt & redo second year?
Or should I just keep going and hope that I can somehow save this year? (My mental health issues are ongoing so this would be a bit of a gamble)

Prioritise your own health and wellbeing. If you feel you can't cope now, the added pressure of trying to improve this year might make things worse. I would take some time out for yourself, and when you are ready, redo the year.

Definitely re-take second year. There's nothing more important than your health.
