Exceptional Mitigating Circumstances (EMC)

Edge Hill University follows guidance from the Office of the Independent Adjudicator (OIA), who have recently updated their recommended approach to the EMC process.

You can submit an EMC at any point from the start of the module, but the final deadline is no more than 10 working days after the assessment date.

Examination modifications

We appreciate that some students may require modifications to examinations, due to a disability, specific learning difficulty or mental health need.

Where there is certifiable evidence to support your request, we offer reasonable adjustments to the standard form of an examination. This includes additional time, use of a PC or small group examination rooms.

Modified examinations test the same core levels of achievement in relation to validated learning outcomes as the assessment and examination of all other students.

Applying for exam modifications
