Stressed as I can't get into Medicine due to resitting? watch

    A lot of members of my family passed away in 2017 throughout the year, resulting in me going through a constant depressed cycle. Once I'd recovered grieving over one, another would've died.

    Because of this, I got terrible Maths results (well, in general, bad results in everything), but as Maths was modular instead of linear for me, I have to retake the three exams I took last year (C1, C2 and S1).

    I want to apply for Medicine (I'm taking a gap year and doing a 2019 entry), but I keep seeing that unis only want applicants who haven't resat their exams or got ABB/AAB the first time they took their exam.

    I understand they accept "extenuating circumstances", but I'm not sure how I'm meant to put down my problem under that. Am I meant to tell someone at college about it, or write it somewhere, send an E-Mail to someone? I'm a little confused.

    I'm a lot better now and I'm getting better grades, I just don't want this resit to push me back on going into the course I want.

    Can I have advice on trying to fix my case on this matter? I really did suffer a lot of problems last year.
