I am not well enough prepared for an oral exam I will have soon. I should probably pass the exam but with a bad grade I wouldn’t be happy with. This comes due to some bad time management and some personal problems during the semester. Unfortunately I still decided to take the exam….
Since we have 2 tries I am planning to fail it. Now I am unsure how to do it politely. Is it ok to come by and see how the exam is, but answer bad on purpose or should I sent a mail that I’m not well prepared and apologize and come to the retake date?
I’m grateful for any advice how to handle the situation.
