    I have no idea. They just said to me they didn't take it into account. It seems pretty stupid because it's only 0.2%, and I can guarantee now that i'm in remission that I could have scored at least an extra 10% of what I got.
    As rubbish as it sounds, you've applied for extenuating circumstances for your CD, but it wasn't accepted.

    I'm not sure what else you can do, but you should definitely speak to your personal tutor about it.

    For the entire degree. The grade boundary at Leeds for a 2i is 58.5%, and I got 58.33% overall.

    I'm sorry to hear this. I think you should definitely try to appeal or contact the appropriate person within your union. Hope it all works out for you.

    I'm sure the grade boundary is 59, and not 58.5? (http://www.leeds.ac.uk/aqst/document...classleeds.pdf). There is a discretionary area of 0.5 below 59 (58.5-58.9), but that would only give you a chance at a 2.1. It wouldn't be automatic. So you're actually only 0.2 off the discretionary area. When you were told that your personal issues were not taken into consideration did you not ask why not? It seems very unfair.

    The school of history secretary is a real *****, you really wouldn't wanna cross her. I'll keep ringing on monday until I get the nice one though. Hopefully it will get upgraded, but who knows.

    Are you in Leeds at the moment? I find that going in in person normally cuts some ****.

    I think going in would make it worse. The secretary has a real attitude problem and she does anything she can to be unhelpful. She some how managed to cut her working day down to 5 hours instead of 8, so the office is barely ever open.

    I know what you mean. English was the same! Isn't there a seminar tutor you could email for help?
