Do you go to a reputable school? Did you put in a good faith effort?
If the answer is yes and yes, you probably didn't fail. If the answer is no to either one, then the answer to your question is maybe

I go to one of HYS. I understand that failing is almost unheard of, but I fear I may have accomplished the near-impossible. I took the (black-letter class) exam while sick and extremely sleep deprived and got through a little less than half of it. And the answers I did give weren't particularly inspired.
