Illness and Emergencies/Extenuating circumstances:
If you have been unable to attend an examination/submit coursework on account of extenuating circumstances, it is vital that you provide the School Office with medical certificates and any other relevant documentary evidence within three working days of your return to your studies, or, during examination periods, within three working days of the last examination.
Marks are not awarded for extenuating circumstances, but examinations may be deferred, extensions to coursework submission deadlines permitted, and further attempts to pass modules permitted without penalty. Please contact the relevant module convenor and/or the Exams Officer to discuss your circumstances.
If you believe that your performance may be adversely affected by extenuating circumstances in advance of an examination/submission deadline, please seek advice from your doctor, the University Occupational Health Service, Adviser of Studies, Exams Officer, or the relevant Students’ Union officer(s).
It is very important to raise your concerns with the School in advance of the examination/deadline. Students are ultimately responsible for the decision to undertake an examination or submit assessed work.
Please consult the University’s General Regulations for further information. The Exams Officer will be happy to offer advice.
