I left my last course in February but applied for uni anyway. I friend told me that because I had to drop because of illness, I may be able to get special consideration. I’m not to sure what this is, if anyone has done this themselves or knows any thing about it I would love to hear your advice.

Thanks honeys

Hello,
Yes If u had a serious illness which may have affected ur school work etc... then u be able to "get special consideration". U should be able to prove that u ve had such illness. Ideally ur School should ve mentioned this in ur reffrence.
U can still write to them or get ur school to write a letter saying that u ve had this n dat...
If u be able to prove that...They will make the offer more flexible.

Thanks for the advice Hamal ! I should beable to get a note off my doctor . If I wrote 2 them do u think I should send a copy of the note with it or maybe see if I could get my doctor to write?

do u think its best to ask the uni first about what they think, or just sent the letter stright to the course leader ?

I have asked this question of one of UCL's admissions tutors and He said its best if ur school write to us. I think so too...
They would wanna see a letter from ur doctor for sure before changing ur offer.
