Its the same at all universities I think. They only count personaly health problems or if you're imediate relevents have died (they count parents or grandparents as this).

However I am sure you could have claimed stress or somthing. However you could only do this if your father went itno a coma before the final exams etc.

I wouldn't have a clue if you could get into an LSE with a 2:2 or not.

I hope your father gets better anyway.

Make a formal appeal - at the university level (not departmental as they may fob you off, and it sounds like you've tried that already).

And call me a ****** again, I will hunt you down and shove your 2.2 certificate up where the sun don't shine!
