I've been asked to retake my first year and change degree pathway to a more suitable and flexible subject. I was unfortunately hospitalised in February 2016 and whilst recovering I was unable to attend to my studies. I also have disability, so I couldn't manage my recovery, disability and missed a lot of lectures, seminars and coursework.
Again, my health deteriorated during exam time which left me medically unable to attend one exam. My hospital consultant is willing to write a letter explaining I was medically unable to attend lectures, seminars and attend to my studies fully. Basically confirming everything that happened.
I did not contact University student support, so i'm unsure if that'll play against me getting compelling personal reasons?
I would have used my gift year but unfortunately I had to change Universities. I have used one year already. My previous university went through a restricting programme and the department I was under was at one point going to inevitably close and this wasn't the degree I signed up for, I went for the Department essentially.
I withdrew from study and applied to another University, and so this new university would like me to repeat a year, but as mentioned before was from health reasons.
The old university did keep the department open but with job loses for professors and main lecturers. I had to submit a ucas application which was after the final decision was made, but I had letters which confirm intent to close the Department.
I'm not sure If I can reclaim the gift year back because of the department? or additional funding because of illness? Do these count as compelling reasons or not?
