    When schools ask you to explain it what do you say if there is really no excuse?

    I mean what if your mom wasn't sick, you didn't have to work 60 hrs/week and you don't have dyslexia.

    What if you were simply immature and didn't get it at the time?

    Will schools buy it if you simply say you were immature and didn't focus your abilities and allocate your time properly?
