(Original post by Medusa.D)
Hi there, hope you're doing well!
Last year during December my mother decided to leave home without warning my brother and I. The police was alerted and a week later it was discovered that she moved to a different country with another man. I last saw my father left when I was 12, and I now live with my grandparents and aunts family.
Due to this I decided to retake year 12 and I'm currently studying 3 different subjects in year 12 because I would like to go to Cambridge. Do you think discussing this family issue as an extenuating circumstance count? I'm not using this as an excuse it's just a cause for my grades dropping.
Thank you
No one can really tell you whether this might aid your application, but you should submit details of your circumstances via the following procedure:

The title is a little misleading.

As Avesta says, fill out an ECF. It seems likely that your situation would be considered a valid reason for retaking a year, which would presumably be frowned upon in normal circumstances. It would not, however, excuse poor grades (from the contextual data page: "It should be noted that we don’t use contextual data to systematically make conditional offers at lower grades, or to make allowances for a poor academic record.").
