Delayed Sleep Phase Syndrome and Morning ExamsWatch
Anyway, the reason for this post is that I have been told categorically by the specialist at the sleep clinic that I cannot do morning exams and if I do then I will be going against medical advice, as I won't be at my best, will likely fall asleep and mess up my treatment plan. We do not know whether my pattern can even be forced into a 'normal rhythm', some can't and many give in to it and go for jobs that are flexible or do night shifts. Obviously, this isn't possible for me, I have three exams and all of them are 9am ones. I am in my third year, missed all of my classes this term due to this disorder and how tiring commuting is, but what can I do? The specialist said about taking the exams in the afternoon and that they would write a letter for me, but I doubt they can be changed at this short notice and I know they don't do history resits at the university I am with, as I remember enquiring last year (I have many medical problems). I am really panicking and no one is at the university right now, so wonder if anyone has any advice?
