I've failed to submit an assignment due to mental health reasons - which is weighed at 50%. I did not ask for an extension since I was really overwhelmed and figured it would be too late cos I had read that it would take a few days to get approval. To pass I need 120 credits, what are the chances of me getting a deferral? Or what are the possible steps that would take place after this?

If you have evidence that your mental health was bad (like a therapist/psychologist/doctor's note) then you probably have a good chance of getting a deferral and/or extension.

Hi, what university are you studying at? The process and application will differ from university to university. I can have a specific look for you if you give me a little more about your circumstances or just which university you are currently studying at.

Hi there,

If you could get a note from a doctor or even one of your lecturers, stating that your mental health was bad and stopped you from achieving your best, you may be able to get a deferral or extension... but I do believe no matter what, you can get a resit if you're not happy with your mark or failed; your lecturers may just try and stop you depending on what type of student you are. If you're usually a spot-on or A* student in their eyes, they may just see this as a little wobble but not one to be concerned about.

But I would suggest looking at getting an deferral or resit since this was 50%. Get in touch with your lecturer on how to get this sorted as they will know best and guide you to where you need to be.

I hope this helps!
