I have received conditional offers to attend university later in the year. However, due to receiving extra funding (3yrs+1), I will not qualify for a student loan this year and I am not in a position to self fund the degree. I suffered from depression in the past and it has been suggested to me that I should appeal and state compelling reasons. However, the compelling reasons will be the same reasons that I previously provided evidence for, when I initially did the 3 years + 1. I am worried that Student Finance will not accept the compelling reasons.
Does any one have any suggestions that can help me out? I would really appreciate it!

You can appeal to get 1 year of funding back to cover a year of study you were unable to complete. To appeal, please write a cover letter and provide evidence that shows why you were unable to complete it. When you have already appealed 1 specific year, you can not appeal the same year again.
