Exceptional Circumstances

Exceptional Circumstances are unforeseen circumstances or factors outside of your control which may have impacted your ability to study or perform at your normal level or standard.

It is important that you notify your School at the earliest opportunity if you feel that something outside of your control is going to impact your studies, or has impacted your studies. If you attend an exam or submit coursework without notifying the School about any Exceptional Circumstances, it will be seen that you believe you are fit to be assessed or examined.

If at any stage you are unsure about the process and would like some support or guidance, please feel free to contact SU Advice on
