When should I make my extenuating circumstances claim?

When should I make my extenuating circumstances claim?

Claims for extenuating circumstances are considered by a sub-board of a Subject Examination Board (SEB). The university deadline for submitting an extenuating circumstances claim is three working days before the relevant Extenuating Circumstances sub-board meeting. Remember that ‘working days’ exclude weekends, bank holidays and university closure days.

The date will therefore vary between Schools and institutes so you need to check this in School publications like the student handbook and you can also contact your student support officer to ask.
