If you feel that your performance has been adversly affected by a personal issue, you may consider submitting a special circumstances form. The Special Circumstances Committe, which meets in June and August, may consider taking your circumstances into account and will then decide on the most appropriate course of action. Note that the outcome of your application depends on supporting evidence that you can provide alongside it (e.g., doctor's letter).

It is advisable that you contact your personal tutor and Student Support Office for help before submitting the special circumstances form.

More information can be found on the Student Support website.
