I am returning from a break in studies to discover that I need to do a personal compelling reasons(CPR) cover letter to reclaim my first year tuition loan. Now, I did not see my GP while my issues were going on, so it is not on record. However, I did not see my GP while the medical events that led to my break were occurring.
However I do have a documented history of anxiety and depression. I do have a psychatric report from the time period in question that at least states that I did experience extreme symptoms(hallucinations, fatigue, depression, anxiety etc) that fall under CPR. Additionally, I have another psychiatric report from 10 months later because I did not feel that I made any improvements.
Is my case likely to be successful even though I don't have a signed letter from a GP more or less stating "I believe there is sufficient evidence that Icewing would have found continuing with his studies difficult during X time period"
...when I could get more on benefits?
