Basically I failed this 1st Year and so I'm having to make an appeal to resit the year with repeat teaching/classes (compared to resiting as a private candidate without teaching).
Apparently resiting as a private candidate is the default position, so you have to make a good case for why you think you should have teaching. I also have to discuss in the appeal what made the year so difficult and strategies to overcome this...
So 1 of the reasons I failed was because of my family situation where with my parents being away, I had to stay at home to look after my cousin alot, so I missed lots of lectures/classes. I can include this, but I don't think it's enough of an excuse.
The other main reason I failed was due to pure laziness and not working, however I don't know how I can put this down as 1 of the reasons for my failing without them thinking I won't simply do this again when I repeat the year.
Anyone help on what I can include + the 'strategies' to overcome these problems?
What to write in appeal to convince Uni to let me resit with teaching. Watch

I'm thinking you could maybe disguise laziness as 'slow to adapt to university life' due to shyness or something else etc. Just curious but why did your parents go away?
