We believe it is best for you to submit your work first time, on time. If we feel that there was something you could have done to avoid your circumstances, your claim will be rejected and standard regulations will apply.
However, if we agree that there was a circumstance which you could not have done anything about, we will apply one of the following outcomes:
a) If you have submitted your work within one week of the deadline, and its accepted, it will be marked and counted as if it had been submitted on time.
b) If you have failed or were unable to submit your work, the Award Board will offer you another attempt, unless it offers to condone your module mark. For more information, please see the Academic Regulations - What if things don’t go to plan?
c) At the end of your studies, the Award Board will look to see if you have passed any modules with Exceptional Circumstances upheld. If the Award Board judges that your circumstances have affected your overall outcomes, it may exceptionally allow you to be reassessed. This could be, for example, because your mark is very different to your other modules marks, and this has impacted on your degree classification.
