Why have you decided you want to resit, does your future plans require you to need to resit? What degree do you want to do?

Got bad levels. Yes they they do. Want to do med in general but aiming for bioscience or pharmacy

Point is I know I’m gonna take a year out and resit.

I’m just stressed about this now, I think I can now only withdraw my application via the university.

It’s not like they can force me to go to uni lol

So if you got the grades for Medicine, would you apply for it? Meaning, are you aiming for bioscience or pharmacy because you don't think you'll get the grades for Medicine, or are you aiming for Graduate Entry Medicine?

If you don't mind me asking, what grades did you get and in what subjects? I ask so I can get a realistic understanding of where you're at with your goals.

I know it's easy to say, but don't stress. Getting stressed isn't going to make your situation better nor will it make it worse. What I suggest is that, if you really want to take a year out, then speak to the university as soon possible.

Resit policies are strict with med so I am aiming for grad med.

And have you contacted any medical schools to ask them whether or not your extenuating circumstances would allow you to resit? Also, have you checked the graduate entry requirements? GEM is tougher than the normal procedure.

What were you hoping to study at Royal Holloway?

They can't force you, but they can take £9,000 from you as if your seat is reserved for you, then someone else has lost out on a seat to study in. So best to speak to them as soon as possible.

Im sorry but I don’t think you know much about this process if you think they’re just gonna take 9k from this......please if you don’t know enough about the situation don’t try to advise me or others, you’ll just lead others the wrong way.

Assuming they've already given you a seat (seeing as you can't reject them on UCAS), they can charge you based off that, if that makes sense? I'm not saying they definitely will, but I'm say they can. That's why you need to sort it out asap, as if they register you onto the system then you're basically 'attending'.

Basically you have to register to get charged. Whether you register yourself or not, I don't know, as it depends on the university. But if your chosen university register you automatically, then it's the same thing as how I register. Once I've registered for the year, they will charge me for the year. If you have to register manually, and you don't, then they shouldn't charge you, but ask the university.

No. They cant.

Firstly I can cancel my student finance loan so where are they gonna get this money from lol??

Also first scheduled payment is in October and that’s ONLY if my attendance is confirmed and sfe gets notice of that.

Considering I’m not going there, I won’t be showing up and cancelling my loan also next week, they can’t charge e 9k lmaoooo, maybe like £20 bc of the admission stuff but that’s it.

I’m sorry but clearly you don’t know enough about the system or how it works if this is the conclusion you’re coming up with. Like I said previously , I appreciate your efforts but if your advice is coming from flawed knowledge don’t spread it, it misleads others. You would’ve given other students here a heart attack if they had read ur comment and didn’t know the system properly.

Ps. Are you even getting loans? You lack knowledge when it comes to student finance loan? Are you a private student? Do you pay ur own tuition fees?

Fair enough if that’s second year but when ur enrolling into a course and it’s your first year, it doesn’t work like that.

Students funded by Student Finance
All current students whose tuition fees are paid to the University by way of a Student Finance loan are calculated as follows (this includes postgraduate students who are entitled to Student Finance (e.g. PGCE students):

Withdrawal/suspension between 24/09/2018*– 13/01/2019 – 25% of the total fee will be charged
Withdrawal/suspension between 14/01/2019 – 28/04/2019 – 50% of the total fee will be charged
Withdrawal/suspension between 29/04/2019 – 07/06/2019 – 100% (ie the full tuition fee) will be charged

This is UoM policy, may differ for other universities.

Self financing students
For all self financing undergraduate & postgraduate students (except modular students) and irrespective of the rate of tuition fees being charged, tuition fees are charged on a daily basis up to and including the last date of attendance on the programme.

Refunds can only be made once the School/Faculty have issued an official last date of attendance and confirmed this on student’s record so it is visible by staff in the Student Services Centre. Once this has been done, the tuition fees will be recalculated and if the student has paid an amount greater than the new rate of tuition fees due, a refund will be made, by returning the funds to the same payee or account from which the payment was made.

It doesn't say anything about 1st year vs 2nd year.

All of this only counts when I actually ATTEND the university. (25% from 24/09/19 etc and even then it’s refundable)

From what I’ve seen I have 14 working days and it’s only been 11.

I havenr started the university at all. I’m still 4 weeks away from starting my course.

Also be aware that clearing is open until mid October so that means when I reject my place that place is still open for any students that call in for clearing.

I know, but this is UoM policy, and was just an example. Your university may differ so that's why you need to check their specific policies. Though I'm sure there's someone on TSR that knows about the different policies for different universities.

If you know your university can't take money from you if you don't register, then why are you getting so stressed out? Even if you can't cancel, just don't register and don't attend.
