    I feel like this is pointless, as I probably already know the answer to this question.

    About two years ago (?) I studied a Psychology A-Level in college. I vigorously revised every night, attended all revision sessions, and could remember all the information that I had been thought. Results came back from the final exam, and I was awarded a U (Ungradable).

    I was absolutely devastated. I was planning on attending university and studying Psych, but now I didn't know what to do. I remembered EVERYTHING mentioned on the paper and I was confused to why I had failed so drastically.

    I attempted to appeal to my teachers and the college staff to try and sort it out. The head of the college then started to avoid me by ignoring my emails. When I finally got a meeting with her, she brushed it off. My Psych teacher was on unexpected leave, so I couldn't go to her for help. Surely the staff are supposed to support the students if they feel something is amiss with their exam?

    So, my question is: Is there anything I can do, or do I have to live with failing this entire course? It's currently 3am and I can't sleep because I've remembered all of this. Any advice would be beneficial.
