    Hi friends

    Basically I am applying for next year having dropped out last December, I was a second year. I dropped out because at the time I was suffering from an anxiety disorder which I let get the better of me. But obviously I still gained a lot from over a year in higher education.

    I'm asking a few things I suppose. Should I make the circumstances clear so that they don't have doubts about my commitment or whatever? Will that factor into their decision process in any case? I feel like it's something I should clarify if nothing else but I don't want to focus on my metal health over my attributes etc.

    Cheers if you've read

    Let your referee talk about this. Only mention it if you have something positive to talk about in terms of your interest in the subject or development of study skills.

    Thank you. My referee was actually the person I went to when I dropped out in the first place
