The Extenuating Circumstances procedure explains that only claims submitted before an Exam Board takes place in the summer will be considered by the EC panel in the timescales section. 


Your claim is not eligible for consideration by an EC Panel as claims may only be submitted before an exam board has reached a decision on a student’s resultsAfter this point the Academic Appeal procedure should be followed under the category; “Performance in assessment was affected by extenuating circumstances” 


In order to submit an Appeal for consideration you must be able to provide evidence that proved your inability to have made this claim before the exam board met. 


The academic appeal submitted by the student will need to demonstrate that new evidence was not, and could not have been, made available to the Board of Examiners at the time of its original decision.  Any matters which could have been raised before the meeting of the Board, but, without good reason, were not raised, will not be considered in the event of an appeal. 


If you would like to ask a more specific question, please do so by submitting an enquiry via the student enquiry centre where your local Assessments team will pick up your query and respond as soon as possible.
