I'm taking a "history and appreciation of film" online class this semester to get extra credits for transfer (I'm a community college student). However, I missed the online test, which was due today. This entire week I was sick and overwhelmed with two tests and two essays due and the film test completely went over my head.
I know it's not really an excuse but this type of thing never happens to me. I am a good student with a strong GPA at CC, involved in extra curricular activities and everything.
There's only 3 tests in the class and those make up the entirety of points in the class. So one 0 means I automatically fail the class.
I'm about to email the professor and explain him pretty much what I wrote here and ask if he can extend the deadline but I'm scared.
What should I add? What if he doesn't extend the deadline? Failing this class would ruin my chances of transferring to a good university (I'm doing my apps right now) and i don't want that to happen.
Do you think he'll listen and how much of a chance do you think he will not extend the deadline?
