The legal team that represented the man in court claimed that the university breached their contract as it failed to calculate his average mark. Furthermore, it was stated that the correct average of his marks would have allowed Mr. Crawford to pass the final year of his degree.
Paul Crawford began his studies in October 2005 on Tyneside and now currently lives in Australia. Back in 2010 he failed his final year for the first time. Next year he got a B grade in the domain of Communication and Clinical Skills and was told once more that he failed. Instead of accepting what happened and re-plan his life the man decided to launch legal action. The trial was held in the UK's top court where UK's top judges presided. The man lost the trial and is now facing the legal bill which amounts for a whooping £90,000.
