Getting evidence from my GP

Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016

    Although my GP gave me a brief medical history printout, he did not give me a letter for the compelling personal reasons because of something sort of consent reason. He said something to the effect that I send my cover letter and the other evidence I can gain from my uni and send it off to student finance. Then, apparently, student finance sends him a form with which he can write out the details of my situation at the point of my study break.

    Is that really the case? Or should I go back *for more questions?*

    Hi there.

    If this is to apply for 'Compelling Personal Reasons' then a letter prepared manually by the Doctor or the University which clearly details the reasons you have any breaks in study will suffice.

    There is no official form the GP has to fill in.
