Important Note: You should note that the policy (like that of many universities) takes the view that by sitting an examination or handing in an assessment, a student has deemed herself/himself them self fit, and no subsequent claim for extenuating circumstances will be considered. Your Faculty will publish deadlines Deadlines will be published for the submission of such claims prior to the assessment and it is important that you are aware that such claims must be made by the deadline, as after it has passed a claim will not be considered unless there are very exceptional circumstances, which could form the basis of an academic appeal.
- If extenuating circumstances are on medical grounds, medical evidence must be attached.
- If extenuating circumstances are on other grounds, appropriate documentary evidence must be attached.
Supporting evidence is likely to be documentation from a professional (Doctor, CounsellorCounselor, member of the University’s Student Wellbeing Well-being Services, Disability Support Adviser)
