What are extenuating circumstances?
Extenuating circumstances are circumstances which:

- are exceptional
- are outside of your control
- can be corroborated by independent evidence
- occurred during or shortly before the assessment in question.
If you wish to claim extenuating circumstances, please download a form from the link below and submit via email to your faculty office or partner institution.
If you are claiming extenuating circumstances due to either a suspected or confirmed case of COVID-19 you are required to inform the University either by reporting it to firstname.lastname@example.org or by completing the reporting form which can be accessed at C19 Reports.
