Hi all- I'm really in need of advice
I failed my second year initially and was granted first attempt which meant my fees were waived- so 13/14 was my 'gift year'- but I left and was given temporarily leave. My student support told me my fees would be waived again.
I didn't even realise my fees would be affected. I only found out as I am looking to transfer universities to wales and was ringing sf to see if things would change did she inform me
The advisor stated that id used my gift year and wasn't entitled to a loan or a grant. She said however that a CPR form would be considered, letter from a doctor or the university. And that it's unusual that they ignore circumstances. However after reading a few threads - it seems as though they are really strict?
My circumstances are related to sexual abuse by my brother which affected many avenues of my life. Will they sympathise?
My degree is a three year programme
Compelling reasons - have I ruined my whole degree? Watch

Hi Red Army,
Compelling personal reasons or medical evidence of your withdrawal or suspension from your course is normally accepted by student finance England.
I would advise to send the evidence to student finance England for review.
