I recently transferred university studies from OU (sitting at home and working in my own time) to University of Nottingham (Timetabled and fairly intense).
I told myself that since I live about 2 miles from the uni, I’d be ok.
However I didn’t factor in the fact that I have MS. As a result my studies have, since October, been shoddy.
I did put myself on the ‘disability’ radar and they have been helpful, but now it’s exam and essay time and, although arrangements have been made for my exams, I have struggled to complete the essays.
What is particularly bothering me is that during the term I tried to make things as easy as possible but nonetheless I came home knackered and didn’t feel inclinrd to study.
Also, I didn’t get a note-taker until later in the term so the notes I took early on are brief and illegible.
Is it exploitative to wave the disability flag, blaming MS for my poor performance, and ask for clemency?
