I recently failed a module in my first year at Lancaster university, and as such have failed the year. I believe this to be due to mental health issues, however I have only just begun the process of seeking help for this and as such cannot submit an extenuating circumstances form. I recognise this is my fault. However, my university has a policy that those that fail their first year reassessments should be granted a repeat year or a chance to resit in December. The year I failed was my repeat year, however I did not fail my first year; I withdrew from my studies for personal reasons. The uni is now saying that because I was on a repeat year, I will not be given further reassessment opportunites, but this was never stated to me, and I believed that as I never failed originally, I would be given these reassessment opportunites. It never states in the Lancaster regulations that I wouldn't. Do you think I have grounds for an appeal?
