The advice I gave was sound and realistic. I have epilepsy myself, and also have a law degree, so I know a little bit more about how the DDA affects your situation than people saying you should fight it. I had seizures throughout my A-level exams, and mine were terminal rather than modular so it had a far greater affect on my grade than one exam did on yours. I was also only given a 3% allowance.
Just because advice isn't what you want to hear ie "awwwww you have a strong case fight fight", doesn't make it bad advice nor does it make it unsupportive.
I was doing someone a favour my answering this, and from what I have seen since you have been rude to them as well as me. I think you need to adjust your attitude a little.
Okay, well the way i see it is that i never came on this thread looking for help nor excpecting it i posted on a thread entitled "did you or do you know people that got into lse that fell short of their offer?" and that was it, although i was pleasently surprised at the response i got and which shows there is a lot of caring people on here. However what i did not appreciate
is that you were speaking to me as if it was me who had said about the DDA and having a strong case etc when in fact i was the first to realise that although i believed LSE to be slightly unfair that i did not have a case against them, they were full up and i did not meet the grades. End of. That is why i have accepted my insurance choice.And if you see my previous comments you will see that. So again please don't tell me that i'm not happy when people tell me what i don't want to here as i was not unhappy with your comment because you said i didnt have a chance of getting into LSE - Been rejected by LSE was the hardest thing i have ever to hear yet i was the first to accept it and move on.
I was mostly not happy with your comment as i felt that i was been made out to be a liar as a result of some of your comments such as "only a consultant could have made a diagnosis not a GP" and another was when you said LSE would not believe a speedy diagnosis as its impossible to tell in 2 months. Those comments made by you are true, however you made them based on assumptions about me such as GP/consultant thing. Which i felt was wrong. If you really did want to give sound advice then i feel the best way would have been to ask me something rather than assume
I also think a better way to approach it, again if you were genuinely wanting to help would have been to send me a private message as i personally am not particularly comfortble posting personal medical information on the internet.
And as for saying that given 3% is fair, well then that's your opinion however it seemed unusual to me that in the exam i had a fit in, i was unable to complete the paper and was taking to hospital due to a head injury i was given only 3% however i was kept in hospital and therefore missed two Chemistry modules completely yet i was awarded an A grade for both those exams.
I also don't believe i was rude to your friend. I merely explained why i had not been detailed and explained why i was offended by the post
