(3) If the eligible student did not successfully complete the latest previous course for compelling personal reasons—

(a)one additional year is to be added to the calculation made under paragraph (2), and

(b)a further additional year may be added if the Welsh Ministers think it appropriate to do so having regard to those reasons.
