There may be occasions where a student’s preparation for or performance in an assessment is affected by personal circumstances. If this is the case then they must be reported as extenuating circumstances as soon as possible. The resources below provide advice and guidance for students and staff on the reporting and consideration of requests for extenuating circumstances.
- Extenuating Circumstances will be considered consistently, fairly and transparently.
- Information provided by students will remain confidential, where possible.
- Students will be provided with timely and relevant information explaining how Extenuating Circumstances will be managed.
