There is always a risk that you might not receive your extension outcome until after the original deadline, particularly at busy times of year (eg. ahead of key assessment periods).
If this happens, the Extenuating Circumstances policy (Meeting Coursework Deadlines) clearly states that if you have not received a decision on your EC claim by the original deadline you must submit the work you have completed to date so that, if it can form the assessment.
Where this is the case and you are submitting work by the original deadline, please ensure you include the words EC Pending in the filename submitted.
This will inform the marker that this is your work in progress and that (if your extension is approved) there will be another piece of work submitted.
You are then recommended to continue working on your assignment to take full advantage of any additional time, if granted.
If your extension is approved (and you submitted work in progress by the original deadline) you may need the Assessments team to re-open your submission box to allow for further submissions. This won't always be the case though
Check Moodle once your receive your outcome and if you find this is the case, raise an enquiry via the student enquiry centre to ask for your submission box to be re-opened. Keep checking Moodle and submit your work by the approved extension deadline to avoid penalties.
