    Evening all,
    l am currently facing a awkward situation regarding my funding for this year. l applied for a BA top up course 1 year at my local university. l applied for all the relevant funding only to be told today that l will not be eligible for most of the finance due to having a ELQ ( l failed the same course last year and not completed) so basically l am applying as a gift year. l have spoken to SFE and they say they want confirmation and transcripts that show l did not complete. Once they have this they will reassess me, does anyone know if this is correct?

    It is possible that they would reconsider if you did fail as you don't have that qualification, it might help your case if you could prove compelling personal reasons for that year.
