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 an on time application 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 your application.
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.
*If you miss this deadline, you may apply late, but you'll need to explain why your application is late. You will also need to provide relevant evidence. See the 'timescales and deadlines' page for more information.
