Weekly Students, Careers & Clerkships Thread

Has anyone discontinued a unit late in the semester and if so, how did you explain it if it came up in an interview? I am seriously considering discontinuing one of my units because of my shitty time management from working too many days a week, not studying enough and some other family stresses, which culminated in me handing in late what was a disastrously bad major essay.

Apart from this I have a (barely) distinction average at a go8 and could probably scrape okayish marks in my other units. Would it be worse to discontinue the unit, or just cop the bad mark on the transcript?

I know I'm probably overreacting about this but considering I'm at a late stage in my degree and am just worried about my employment prospects.
