    Hello,

    I had achieved a 2.2 in Mathematics from a respectable, top 20 institution. However, during the exam period, i had mitigating circumstances, and was prescribed medication and told to rest, with my exams to commence three days later. I have a doctor's note.

    It then became known that i wasn't able to retake my final year exams in late August, but the next academic year, which i am not prepared to do.

    My question is would firm that require a 2.1, what are the chances that they would still consider me.

    Why are you not prepared (rather than for example not able) to wait to resit your exams?
