Documenting Absence or Missed Deadlines

If illness or other emergencies cause you to miss lectures, tutorials or examinations, or prevent you from completing assessed work on time, then you should send or hand in a medical certificate (or other professional documentation) to the Teaching Support team in the Old Physics Building, which is directly opposite the New Maths and Physics Teaching Centre, as quickly as possible. They will forward copies to the lecturers concerned. It is important to do this because of the possible penalties associated with failure to attend sessions or to submit work for assessment. Promptness in handing in medical certificates is especially important at examination time as they cannot be taken into account if submitted more than three days after the last examination of the session.

STUDENTS NEED TO COMPLETE AND SUBMIT AN EXCEPTIONAL CIRCUMSTANCES FORM IF CONSIDERATION FOR MISSED OR LATE ASSESSMENTS IS TO BE CONSIDERED.
