Extenuating Circumstances

This online form should be used by all students of SLLF modules who wish to make a claim for extenuating circumstances relating to missed examinations, assessments, or non-submission of coursework, including extensions to coursework deadlines.

The online system will automatically forward your claim to the appropriate member of staff. If you wish to discuss your claim before or after submitting it, you should contact the relevant staff member (listed below) directly.

For claims made during Semesters 1 and 2

Students must complete all parts of this form and submit it - together with appropriate documentary evidence (such as a medical certificate) – before the assessment deadline; claims submitted more than 24 hours after the assessment deadline will be rejected. No claims will be granted without supporting documentary evidence.

For claims made during the Examination Term

Exams

Students who miss an exam during Examination Term due to extenuating circumstances must complete all parts of this form and submit it - together with appropriate documentary evidence (such as a medical certificate) – as soon as possible after the examination, and in any case by Monday 12 June at 5pm.  No claims will be granted without supporting documentary evidence.

Missed Coursework (or late submissions)

Students who have failed to submit any piece of coursework throughout the year due to extenuating circumstances must complete all parts of this form and submit it - together with appropriate documentary evidence (such as a medical certificate) relevant to the time period of the assignment deadline- by Monday 12 June at 5pm .  No claims will be accepted without supporting documentary evidence.

Outcomes

There are various possible outcomes for accepted claims, but the most common is an offer of a First Sit in August for any missed exam, or coursework.  In the case of final year students, this would delay your degree and graduation, as you won’t have completed your studies yet.

For further information on what constitutes extenuating circumstances, and possible outcomes, undergraduate students should in the first instance refer to the SLLF undergraduate handbook available on QM+. It is also strongly recommended that students read the Extenuating Circumstances booklet available from the Advice and Counselling Service, and the college’s Academic Regulations (Section 3.73- 3.82)
