So I've missed about three month's worth of lectures at university due to bereavement and an illness. The bereavement period has been proven, of course with evidence of a death certificate for my uni to see. However, the time of when I missed lectures due to an illness requires evidence from a doctor. I was so shocked to hear them say that I will need to pay a sum of £40 for a letter that needs to simply state my condition, how it affected my studies and a signature.
I'm willing to pay for the letter but £40 for a simple letter is just too much! Have you guys ever been charged this much? Is this the usual price?
