Hi so let me start this off with I didn't want to really be at university this year, but I was convinced by my parents and my teachers that I should go to university. I wanted a gap year. I didn't believe I was in the mental state to be at uni..

Secondly I didn't get put in a hall and instead had to opt for private accommodation, which turned out to be full of postgraduates and internationals who don't socialise :/

Thirdly I didn't know what I wanted in university and honestly felt confused if I wanted to be here. I didn't put myself out there enough during the first few weeks of university and think that's where I ****ed up - this largely due to me not really wanting to be here.

I'm failing first year cos I really don't have motivation to revise. I really lost motivation after the first 2 months or so, got super depressed and wanted to leave..had a MCF and now I'm still not motivated to study here.

I'm going to have exams in May then again in August meaning I have no break and I don't think I'll be in the mental state to be a second year or work hard for 5 months straight where the workload is immense. I don't have a social life and that's partly my fault since I had a psychological block due to me wanting to be on a gap year..

There's still 2 months until May exams and I can go full A level sweat mode where I did 8 hours a day but as you can tell I don't have motivation...However a gap year allows for me to have 6 months break but now Coronavirus has ruined any productivity of gap year.

Only issue is - first year is basically over and before you ask - no I've done no work, I haven't even done the first [ever] lab for the big module which is worth 30 credits and there's chances exams can be cancelled.

I haven't done any assignments or any work at all really. I've only really done my lecture notes.

P.s. I'm already 20 :/

Sounds familiar. have I answered this before?
If so you already know my answer. Cant tell as you are anonymous.
Personally I would just leave via doctors note.

Styart again if and when you sort out your mh issues. Doesnt seem like theres anything to save so interruption seems pointless.

You did but with this Coronavirus situation I can't go get a job or do anything productive which has got me double minded so updated the post a bit.

Doesn't an interruption mean I save my place at university and start from year 1 again at the same university? It was very difficult and took a high grade total to get into my current uni and I don't want to lose my place there..

It normally means you preserve your studies. If you wish to restart then I suggest you talk to your tutors. Not sure why as it was my impression you didnt like the course and were unhappy, hence your reaction. They might be sympathetic and they might not. Not sure your reasons as above would spark great hope so I would go and see the GP for some mh issues.

Niot seeing how that benefits you. I would check what your end objective is and work backwards.
