University student, 21, killed herself after wrongly being told she failed exam
The Metro says a student took her own life after wrongly being told she had failed an exam and could not move on to the third year of her degree, an inquest heard.
Mared Foulkes, 21, was studying pharmacy at Cardiff University while working part-time at a chemist’s and had re-sat one of her assessments.
She received an automated email from the university on July 8 last year saying she had failed with a score of 39%. But it referred to a test from March 26 and not the re-sit she took – and passed with a mark of 62% – a month later on April 24.
