They usually say schools should have known about it at the time and told them personally, they wont take your word for it.
good luck though.
well my nan died last year during exams and i told my uni about it straight away who told me to fill in a extenuating circumstances form and said that they would be taken into consideration and for the exams missed i would be able to them in the summer, however this was noit the case and instead i am now repeating the year, i suggest you get advice form the advice centre and make sure that they are water tight and kepp on reminding your lectureer's course leaders etc

if you were physically or mentally ill.
Probably best to ask your school or university as I assume it varies on personal circumstances.
I posted on this thread because I wanted to see the responses for appealing a rejection decision.
