Does foundation year count towards your extra year of funding?

    Hello, I did a foundation year in History then moved on to my first year of my degree also in history but dropped out before my end of year exams. I rang student finance to see if I am eligible to be able to re-sit my previous year again and they told me I would most likely to be able to and he was going to refer it and it would take a few days.

    A week later nothing had changed so I rang again to see if there was a problem and the person told me foundation year 'most likely' counts as an extra year of funding. I just want a definite answer because I've googled it and found yes and no answers for both and would greatly appreciate it if someone at Student Finance England could tell me.

    I am in the process of getting a medical letter anyway which hopefully will sort it but it would be easier if I didn't have to go that root if foundation year doesn't count.
