If you need to apply for exceptional circumstances (Types A, B, C or D), you need to make your application through 'My Requests' on Student Information.
You should do this as soon as the circumstances become apparent to you and preferably before the assessment deadline or the start of the examination/event assessment, although you can make a claim up to 48 hours after the start of the assessment for some of the assessment applications.
You will need to provide evidence if you are applying for Type C so please have it ready to upload to a Google Drive.
Please note that if you are requesting an extension for a deadline assessment via Type C, it is an application and therefore it is not guaranteed. If an extension is granted, the length of the extension is determined by the panel. You should continue to work on your assessment if you can and submit it as soon as you can.
Final hand-in dates for deadline assessments
There are final hand-in dates for deadline assessments. Even with exceptional circumstances and Inclusive Support Plan extensions, you cannot submit work beyond the below relevant dates*:
- Postgraduate (PG) September dissertations - 11 November 2022
- Undergraduate (UG) and PG Semester 1 and Semester 3 resits- 6 January 2023
- PG January Dissertations and September Dissertation resits - 24 February 2023
- UG and PG Semester resits - 20 May 2023
- UG and PG Semester resits- 7 July 2023
- UG Semester 3 - 18 September 2023
This is to allow for marking before the final mark upload date.
For example, if you apply for two week extension for your semester 2 coursework on 16 May, the maximum extension you could have is 4 days.
*All of these dates are subject to change if any further amendments to assessment schedules are required.
