ok here goes,
I past first year with gpa of 2.96.

everyting was going well with college until second year..
a couple of weeks into second year, a family member died. then i was sick for a bit, then my son got pnumonia and was in hospital for a few weeks, then i got food poisioning, and other stuff happened aswel (long story!!).

anyway, i missed most of the first semester and pretty much all of the semester2.
i sat exams in january and only passed 1 or 2 subjects. didn't sit any in may.

I'm a mature student and would love to finish my course.

my question is, would i be able to start second year again? do it properly this time?
im not sure of the rules, regarding repeating a year.

Yes you can repeat the year. However, upon repeating, you lose out on grants or back to education. What department are you? Have you considered talking this whole situation out with the head of department?

You'd want to find James Wrights number then. He's head of your department, as far as I know.

All the silly comments aside, I reckon you just have to repeat the subjects you missed / didn't pass.
So what ever the subjects you passed in January you wouldn't have to do but the rest you would.
Just my 2 cent either best of luck with it
