    Hi,

    Can anyone help me with this issue please;

    My Grandmother recently passed away before my exams. I didn't want to put the family under any more stress and wanted to be strong hence me deciding to take my exams. I was unable to attend the funeral due to it being abroad and money issues, this cut me deep. I have never lost someone close to me than her and I didn't know how to handle it. Been isolated and alone in university made it hard as I didn't tell anyone. I failed my exams and now my university is saying that I can not progress. I feel like I have failed everyone in my family and I feel that something that hurt me so much and someone so important to me who passed away the University has unfairly punished me for. I appealed the decision but they recently got back to me and said that the "application did not adequately demonstrate why I was unable to request a deferral or extension before my exams". I sent a picture of a message that my mother had put in the group chat to inform us of this news. I also put a doctors note and three witness statements backing up the fact that I was not myself and isolated myself in my room. I am deeply hurt and devastated by this news. I want to supply the death certificate and picture of the ticket of my mother traveling for the funeral. will this be enough?

    They are saying you haven't demonstrated why you couldn't tell them before the exams. Sending them a picture of a ticket will do nothing to show that.

    They want to know why you didn't tell them earlier. Tell them why you didn't tell them earlier.
