Extensions & missed assessment
From time to time circumstances arise which are outside your control and which may prevent you from performing to your potential. The College A3 Regulations for Taught Programmes define mitigating circumstances as “recognisably disruptive or unexpected events, beyond the student’s control, that might have a significant and adverse impact on their academic performance.”
In these instances, the College has mechanisms in place to ensure that you will not be disadvantaged in any way provided that your predicament is genuine and that you follow the procedures approved by the College.
There is more information and guidance on the College Mitigating Circumstances website.
Where to submit your Mitigating Circumstances Form (MCF):
In the Faculty of Arts & Humanities, decisions concerning mitigating circumstances will be made by the Assessment Sub-Board Chair in the department that owns the relevant module. Therefore, completed forms must be submitted to the relevant department office.
What do I do if my mitigating circumstances are affecting assessments for modules in different departments?
You should list all affected assessments for all modules on one MCF. This MCF should then be submitted separately to each relevant department (so you will send multiple copies of the same form).
Contact details for department offices in the Faculty of Arts & Humanities can be found here.
If you are unsure about which department owns a module then please contact your home department for further guidance.
