I keep telling myself that I will revise 20 hours a day, I will pass etc, but idk if I'm just deluding myself because I *really* don't want to defer

However the negatives are that I will be 20 when I start Uni and I'll be 25 when I graduate.
At least you'll graduate at this rate you're in danger of failing and worsening your mental health.

Same situation as a Computer Science student + gap year + 20 y/o and what people told me was even if I take an extra year at least you'll graduate as a Computer Science student - there's almost unlimited opportunities for you as one.

20 hours a day!? That's giving yourself 4 hours for everything else, sleeping, a social life. That's not healthy at all.

Talk for the well being team at you university, explain your situation and they help you through the process. Sorry to hear that your first year hasn’t gone well but I hope you do start again soon

You can probably get an MCF to get extensions on coursework as well as your exams moved to August so you're panicking for no reason. Just speak your tutor and apply for an MCF

you misunderstood me. most people who think they have 'mental health issues' don't actually have them. life isn't easy. finding your degree difficult doesn't mean you have mental health issues.

young people seem to think that as soon as they aren't completely happy and relaxed that they have a mental illness

Take the year our and work on recovery. Ur "fast" degree option is a myth. U say urself u r gonna fail anyway so more likely failure and loss of bursary vs a staged and deliberate withdrawl to work on urself.

Wat is this obsession with graduating by a specific age?
