Q. Should I sit my exam if I think I have extenuating circumstances?
A. The University operates a ‘fit-to-sit’ policy for time-specific assessments, such as examinations, tests, presentations or performances. If you think that your ability to attend or complete a time-specific assessment is being affected by extenuating circumstances, you must not sit or complete the time-specific assessment and must submit an Extenuating Circumstances form.
If you attempt a time-specific assessment, this is normally taken as your declaration that you consider yourself fit to do so.
An Extenuating Circumstances claim form and more guidance can be found on the extenuating circumstances webpage.
