I have my final Maths exam in 28 days, which determines whether I go to my University or not, yet I am finding it increasingly difficult to do any work. I had COVID back in February, before which I was able to happily do 6 hours every day, and get lots of work done. But recently, I have been feeling extremely tired and depressed to the point where I can only do a couple of hours or so a day. I am very worried because my exams are so soon, has anyone else been through something similar?

I feel like this everyday, I struggle with work because of depression and I’m scared my parents get angry at me if I don’t do well.

One thing is you don’t want to regret in the future for not working hard now. You don’t want to be depressed in future so make yourself work for the sake of making future you happy. Think of the satisfaction of the good grade you’re going to get and work. You will be amazing don’t let anyone or anything that is not going to matter in your life after two year make difference for the rest of your life

Have you spoken to a doctor about this? A lot of people get severe fatigue after covid, or you might have something like anaemia that might be causing you to feel tired. Or it may all be due to you feeling low. It is best to speak to a doctor so a) they can figure out what's going on, and b) so you have some evidence should should you need to apply for extenuating circumstances if this affects your exam results.

I have no personal experience with this so I'm not sure how it works exactly, but there will be info on google.
