Wasn't expecting that!

I'm not sure this is a valid ground for appeal. You need to speak to Student Services at your University I think, but it sounds like the Board of Examiners have taken a decision.

Well what else would I have written on the forum as I needed evidence for whatever excuse I would of written on the forum so I submitted my release papers with the appeal forum. I have not been convicted of the crime though. What way will the board look at this excuse though?

Does that mean you were in prison at the time of the exams or just the time of the lectures?
Did you let them know at the time? how long were you on remand for?
If you were on remand does it now mean the proceedings have finished and you have been found not guilty?

You would have to look up the regulations on appeals that are particular to your university and see if you could construct an argument that was based on one of the accepted grounds.

What has the adviser at the SU said?

Impossible to say what the outcome will be because we arent fortune tellers and theres not enough information to assess the merits of your case.

They might take you back and they might not based on a conviction alone.
You will just have to wait and see.

It is a bit unfortunate for you failing twice as that is going to have implications for your student funding. I partly feel if I had failed year 1 twice then either uni or that course wasnt for me. SFE may not fund another first year. they may be a lot more sympathetic if you were found not guilty.

Case was thrown out I failed the exam over the preliminary period as I did not sit it as there was domestic issues going on I submitted an ec1 fourm and spoke to the head of the course and I was allowed to resit it over the summer repeat period I done the work in jail but the screws would not allow me to pass it to a family member so they could submit it on my behalf

Ahh, you’re in a pretty difficult situation, the only advice I can give you would be to discuss your situation with your student services (If you haven’t already) and see if they’ll be conciderate especially since you’re taking your education so seriously.
Best of luck and hope it goes well!
