You can also write to the Home Office to make a Subject Access Request
for a copy of the data they have on you and the dates they have on their records. That may help you understand the case against you and give you grounds to progress.

That may be another area of concern.
When you appeal, your existing leave is extended by Section 3C. That also means that you are still governed by the same terms and conditions of your leave status as then.
I do not know the terms of a student visa as then, but if the student visa did not allow you to work more than a certain number of hours a week, that requirement would have also extended into the appeal period.
So, if you exceeded the number of hours of work in that period, that could also be counted against the "good character" requirement for your naturalisation.
Given that you have been asked to wait for just an extra year, it is also worth reflecting as to whether it may not be time and cost-effective to merely wait out the year and reapply in 2018.
