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 sub-board makes recommendations to the SEB. Some Extenuating Circumstances sub-boards have meetings throughout the year, with deadlines for each meeting. The university deadline for submitting an extenuating circumstances claim is three working days before the relevant Extenuating Circumstances sub-board meeting. However, your academic school may have an earlier deadline(s) so you should check this with your school. Your school will set a deadline(s) to make clear the latest date that you can submit your extenuating circumstances claim. Remember that ‘working days’ exclude weekends, bank holidays and university closure days.
