If you find that illness or injury has impacted on your studies, ability to focus, created difficulties with coursework or exams then it would be a good idea to speak to someone from the Student Support Team or DUSA Advice for support and advice about how to get back on track.
If you have a long term illness or chronic health condition (including long term mental health issues) you can register with the University's Disability Services for support.
You can apply for mitigating circumstances - remember to say what the impact you have had on your studies because of the illness or injury and what your preferred outcome may be e.g. grades to take into account the mitigating circumstances, late submissions to be given no late penalties and in the case of resits to be given as a first sitting, You will need to provide evidence of this speak to Student Support about how this may be provided but it would be usually provided by a medical professional or mental health professional e.g. GP, hospital or therapist (external to university)
