    I sent in a letter of evidence for compelling personal circumstances, I had a text acknowledging that SFE had received it on the 18th August and still haven't heard anything,

    I have severe mental health difficulties, hence me originally dropping out (I was undiagnosed at the time of dropping out). My GP wouldn't write an actual letter as they're extremely unhelpful- but they did provide an historic letter proving that I do have a condition and it details the medication that I'm on for the condition.

    Could anyone advise my chances about getting my gift year back? I sent in an accompanying letter detailing everything I possibly could, I'm just so scared that I won't get it. No one bothered to tell me when I did my Foundation Year last year that this would be an issue, I just got an award letter out of the blue minus the tuition fee loan...

    Hi there.

    CPR is awarded at the assessor's discretion so we can't say without any doubt that this will be accepted.

    Normally the letter must confirm your circumstances and must directly link this as the reason you were unable to complete a course in order to be accepted.
