What happens if my claim for extenuating circumstances is accepted?
You will be given a mark for the coursework / assessment you submitted late, without any penalty. Or, if you have not yet submitted your coursework / assessment, you will be given a new submission date.
You will be granted a certified absence and will be allowed to take your exam at the next available opportunity. This is called a ‘first sit’. This means that your maximum mark will not be capped (unless the exam you missed was already a re-sit). Check with your academic school when the next available examination opportunity will be. If you are not fit to sit at the next available attempt, you will need to submit another extenuating circumstances claim.
