If you make a claim for an extension to a coursework deadline which is successful, you will be awarded an appropriate extension and will need to submit the completed work by the new deadline.
If you have received confirmation that your application has been successful, you do not need to hand in anything by the original deadline, just complete your work and hand it in before the new deadline.
If you don’t know the outcome of your application, you should hand in the work you have been able to do as soon as you can, and preferably by the original deadline. If you then hear that your claim has been successful, you can submit an amended piece of work by the new deadline, or if you handed something in and you are given an extension that covers the date you handed in, the work can be marked. Do not wait to hear back from your application before deciding whether to hand work in or not.
There may be occasions when there is insufficient time for us to make a decision and give you an appropriate extension in which you can complete the work ahead of the marking period. In such cases, if your circumstances are particularly impactful, you are likely to be awarded the opportunity to submit an alternative assessment in the resit period.
If a student submits an exceptional circumstances (EC) claim and an opportunity to take the assessment again is given as an allowance, no mark is awarded, even if a piece of work has already been marked.
