    Hi, I'm currently in my final year of a Law Degree, but as a module retriever studying just Land Law, as I did not pass this module and was therefore unable to progress to the LPC stage. I have had two hospitalisations during my time studying this course, which have significantly disrupted my studies. I've done some rough calculations and it looks like I might only graduate with a high 2:2 at the minute. Is there any chance the uni will consider rounding up my degree classification, given the adverse effect on my studies caused by my ill health?

    If you were that ill, then you should be able to apply for serious adverse circumstances and retake those modules?

    I can't see how they could possibly quantify how much to round-up/round-down your score based on how ill you were.
