I was just wondering if I can continue with higher education after failing my second year twice. I was doing a F/D at the university of wolves, but couldn't complete the course on both the attempts , the course was not hard at all, there was just a lot of stuff going on in my life outside of university after my brother passed away, midway into my second year at university, but I was wondering is there anyway i can continue and still obtain a degree, the university stated that they do not allow a 3rd attempt , I haven't contacted them to ask if there was anyway I can still get my degree. If anyone can answer this question for me it will be much appreciated . Thank you

You might be able to get a credit transfer to another university but otherwise no, heck you were lucky to get a second chance.

Surely with your mitigating circumstances, they would at least consider an alternative option.

As said above, maybe a credit transfer to another institution is your only option.

Hope everything works out for you !

It's worth asking about extenuating circumstances, but the uni will most likely abide by what they've told you.

You had already failed the second year once. Unless your marks until the midpoint had been stellar, there may have been descision that you were going to fail again anyway. If your marks had been excellent, you may have grounds for appeal.

See your Student Union and get advice from someone who knows the internal uni procedures, but don't get your hopes up.
