Students who believe that extenuating circumstances exist which prevent them from sitting an examination in the scheduled time or venue should contact their Personal Tutor and Student Support Team. Their case is considered by the relevant Dean and Student Administration in consultation with the Convener of the Board of Examiners. Examples of extenuating circumstances are: religious observance; elite participation where students are representing their country at national or international level. Travel arrangements, early departure during the semester, holidays, learning adjustments (under regulation 18 above), etc. do not constitute extenuating circumstances. (Assessment Regulation 22.2).
The University has added two days to the December examination diet in 2016 and one additional day in 2017. In 2016 the diet will now end on 21 December (rather than 19 December) and the 2017 diet will start on 8 rather than 9 December. These additional days will assist the University to provide an examination schedule that minimises the number of students taking more than one examination per day.
