Compelling personal circumstances

    Basically I did one term of my second year in the year 14/15 before having my daughter in the January, as a result I withdrew from my studies.

    I returned this year 15/16 and think I've failed the second year due to bad time management with a baby and my daughter wasn't in nursery (we have one lined up for this year though!)

    If I was to retake the second year would I be funded as having a baby I'd say are compelling personal circumstances as to why I withdrew?

    Thanks in advance!

    Must admit, I think you could make a sound case for CPR if you could get your GP to back you up. Motherhood isn't straightforward and some people can handle it alongside study. Some can't. From your other post, you have also been battling Post-Natal Depression, which is definitely a health issue beyond your control.

    It's worth a call to Student Finance to see whether your situation would automatically exclude you from claiming CPR. Make sure they know about the PND. My feeling is that you'll be in with a very decent chance.

    You don't have your results - don't give up yet. You've come so far in the last year.*

    Just to make you aware me having a baby in term time was accepted as CPR, just letting you know for future reference if you advise anyone else

    There's got to be far more to it though than just having a baby.
