Basically, I am doing 2nd year Maths, but this is my second resit year so I have used my "gift year" in terms of funding, since i failed first year and this year is a resit of 2nd year.
My university takes 2 installments of £4500.
I am able just about to afford to pay my university the first installment of £4500 but I've had to take out overdraft and ask my retired parents for a small loan and also applied for multiple part time jobs so i can start working to pay the second £4500.
So heres my questions:
1. Would I be able to appeal on the grounds of family issues?
I basically was cut off from my whole family last year after a huge argument which has resulted in having to chose sides and I now no longer can make contact with any family members like cousins, aunts, grandparents, etc. but during this time my parents were threatening me and I was quite depressed and spent late nights arguing on skype and phone etc. and it affected my attendance and therefore my grades. Its something that started in my A levels, my parents actually kicked me out and I had to live with my grandma who i technically wasnt allowed to speak to. Its something that has only straightened itself out this summer which is why I am continuing uni, because I love maths and want a career in a related field and im confident ill be successful this year.
2. Is there a deadline for appealing?
Assuming I now pay this part of my tuition fee by myself, is it still possible that if my appeal gets accepted I would get this money back, or would they just finance my second installment of £4500 if it was a successful appeal?
