    I have had to temporarily withdraw from my three-year BAHons after year two because I was involved in an accident over the summer. The result of this has made concentrating impossible due to sustaining Post-Concussion-Syndrome.
    I have been advised that this condition could take six months to a year to heal.

    Despite the fact that I am a mature student with my own flat to find the maintenance for I am ineligible for state benefits given that I have only temporarily withdrawn from the course and therefore technically still a student.
    So I am considering permanently withdrawing from Uni and then reapplying next year using the 240 points I have earned in the first two years as collateral.

    I would be interested to hear from anyone who has had to make a similar decision and if they can think of any pitfalls I may encounter?

    If you are happy to complete your current cause, then just talk to your uni. I cant see any problem in them letting you finish third year when you have recovered. Make sure you have a clean bill of health.
