We are currently operating in unprecedented times, and because of this the University understands that some students may not be able to submit assessment or attend examinations as usual. We also recognise that in many cases it would be impossible to provide personal evidence given the circumstances.
To ensure that students are not disadvantaged by these circumstances, the University has developed a notification form that students may use to indicate that they have been unable to submit or sit an assessment. The form is available below and should be submitted by any student who misses a planned assessment. Unless that assessment preceded the Coronavirus period, then the application will be accepted, your email notification that you receive after you submit an application should be accepted as confirmation of this.
Before completing an online coronavirus EMC application, please note the following:
For students who have had a submission deadline or assessment prior to July 2020 and are concerned that their performance has been impacted by Coronavirus:
Results are currently being considered by the end of year assessment boards and as such new applications should not be submitted via this form. However, if you did have a submission deadline or assessment date prior to July 2020, and you are concerned that your performance was impacted by the Coronavirus, you will still have an opportunity to notify us of this. Further details will be included with your results information after the assessment boards, for information on when results are published following the assessment boards please click here: Results Publication Dates
For students who have an assessment date from July 2020 onwards and are concerned that their performance will be impacted by Coronavirus:
You will still have an opportunity to notify us of this by using the form below. Please be reassured that the university is currently operating a temporary set of regulations to support students during this time. This includes awarding no detriment deferrals and/or further referrals. Further details can be accessed here: Temporary Regulations
If you need to submit an EMC application due to issues not related to the Coronavirus, please follow the guidance available here: Exceptional Mitigating Circumstances
