where i think the school "fell down" on their job was in not advising you to take an incomplete when your grades started to suffer....can you find an on line class that they would accept? good luck
I agree that once your grade dropped, your advisor should have been notified. At that point a meeting should have occurred to determine the best course of action. Whether it had been postponing exams for you a few days, allowing you to take more exams with less content (using the same questions), or just taking an incomplete.
Know that you tried your best. Don't give up though. Use every lifeline you have (i.e. appeals) first.
For anyone reading this, ALWAYS TALK TO YOUR INSTRUCTORS FIRST
. They can only help you before your grades drop not after. I know we always think that we can do things on our own, but always explore your options first not after. Once you take the exam, that's it.
