I took my first Biology exam yesterday. I couldn't study as much as I wanted because I'm sick and my medicine makes me really sleepy and groggy. I thought I failed the exam (at least, that's what the score told me), but I check online and saw that I got a 75% C... YESSS! Not a grade I aim for generally, but better than what I was expecting.
Congrats on that one: any chance you could explain you were sick and they turn that C into a B? In Uk, they give special dispensation to students if they have medical or personal problems during an exam.
I'm pretty sure they have no sympathy.
In high school, I could have stayed home, made up an excuse, and take the exam next week. It's supposed to be an excuse written by a parent, but usually, I'd just type something up and turn it in.
But alas, this is college; we're adults and have responsiblities.
