Special Circumstances

Guidance for Special Circumstances for Biological Sciences students.

If you have any extenuating circumstances beyond your control such as illness or injury which may have affected your coursework or exams, then you should complete a Special Circumstances form as soon as possible.

Guidance on completing the form is provided below or can be obtained from your personal tutor or by contacting your Student Support Team. The form can be completed by you and submitted either electronically or in person (with supporting documentation) to your personal tutor or BTO Student Support.

The deadline for submissions for the August SC committee is at 12:00 on the following days:

Monday 19th August: Undergraduate students

Tuesday 27th August: Postgraduate Taught students




If you are from outside our school, please get in touch with your own school's Student Support team for advice on completing a form.
