Extenuating Circumstances (R30) - Submission Portal

Extenuating circumstances allows students to identify specific circumstances, which have had a significant impact on their ability to complete assessment to the best of their ability.  The R30 form allows students to bring these to the attention of your Programme Chair/ Progression and Award Board.

The recognition of extenuating circumstances does not normally result in the awarding of additional marks to your grade. It may however result in your module assessments being recorded as deferred or ill with the assessment to be taken at the next available sitting.

Extenuating Circumstances may be submitted due to exceptional circumstances as outlined below:
