Academic Support Extenuating Circumstances

We’ve all been there. Something unexpected has happened and it’s impacting your ability to complete your assessment. When these things happen, remember that you can access support by applying for Extenuating Circumstances.

When Can I Apply For Extenuating Circumstances?

Your department has extenuating circumstances procedures in place, but it’s important to familiarise yourselves with what does and doesn’t qualify as a justified reason for applying. To learn more about this, you can read UoB’s policy on extenuating circumstances, and if you’re still in doubt, you could informally contact your tutors to gauge whether your request will likely get approved. 

Our main message is, that this system is in place to support you. So, don’t be afraid to make use of it should you need support.
