# An Elementary Proof of a Weak Exceptional Zero Conjecture

In this paper we extend Darmon's theory of integration on $\uh_p\times \uh$'' to cusp forms $f$ of higher even weight. This enables us to prove a weak exceptional zero conjecture'': that when the $p$-adic $L$-function of $f$ has an exceptional zero at the central point, the $\mathcal{L}$-invariant arising is independent of a twist by certain Dirichlet characters.
