Extenuating circumstances

If you believe that extenuating circumstances apply to your performance in coursework or an examination, written medical evidence, or evidence of compassionate circumstances, must be presented to your Course/Subject Director not later than five working days following the submission date of coursework or the examination.

Evidence of ill health or extenuating circumstances should be presented using form EC1.  This form can also be found on your Portal.

Evidence of ill health must be authenticated by your medical adviser. Medical certificates should be forwarded directly to your Course/Subject Director. Self-certification cannot be accepted.

Only in exceptional circumstances will late evidence be considered, in accordance with the procedures set out in the section ‘Appeals against Academic Decisions’.
