Am I able to get an extra year of funding from Student Finance for re-taking my third year at uni? Because of COVID-19 everything's gone up in the air and I just find it impossible to finish my third year like this. My course is 3 years long and I haven't taken any re-take years as of yet. I know you can get an extra year of funding but I don't know whether COVID-19 will be a good enough reason?

You get a gift year, no questions asked so if all you have used is 3, then you still have your gift year.
If not and you mean the event covid 19 I think not.
If you had it or were affected by it then possibly. Doctors note would help.

You haven't used your extra year of funding yet so you're fine if you need to retake. You only need to have a reason once you use up all your years of funding, and as a student on a 3 year course you have up to 4 years of funding available.
