Acceptable explanation for a failed grade?

Subscribe

I've got 1 failed grade and was wondering if this was would be an acceptable explanation for it. So the night before the exam I tore my hamstring deadlifting and since I had studied so hard for the exam I decided to find a way to do it. The pain was very bad when I was doing anything other than laying down, so a bit before exam I took some leftover OxyContin (not mine). And I had never taken it before so I wasn't sure what the effects would be, and unfortunately I could hardly read the exam. Like I legit would have to read a question 5 times for it to be somewhat understandable.

There is this little trick called "lying", buddy. Just say your prof was a tryhard who demanded some crazy mathematical stuff in the exam and 60% of the class failed. They´ll forget it by the time you start your next sentence, it´s just a ticked box for them.
