    Theoretically you could use your gift year for it as you didnt pass the second year but you need to speak to slc as this sort of thing will be a case by case basis.

    Thanks, this is what I thought but student finance don't seem to give consistent answers. Iwill ring them and be on hold for 30 minutes before speaking to someone and getting a vague answer

    You're entitled to - length of course + 1 - previous years study. Partial years (ie, dropping out part way through) count as full years.
