Coursework Late or Non Submission and Absence from Exams

Late submission of coursework

If you are unable to submit a piece of coursework by the published deadline, you should hand it in as soon as you can after that and no later than the School deadline (i.e. 1 May 2015), together with a Late submission form (available from your Faculty Office) and supporting evidence. No work submitted after the School deadline will be marked.
Your evidence will be considered by the relevant Mitigating Circumstances Panel. If it is accepted, marks deducted for late submission will be partially or fully refunded.

If your evidence is rejected, 2 points per day will be automatically deducted for late submission.

Coursework non-submission

If you are unable to submit a piece of coursework for medical or other mitigating reasons, you must complete a Late or non-submission of coursework form. This form is available from your Faculty Office and should be returned to the Faculty Office with supporting evidence by the School deadline (i.e. 1 May 2015) at the very latest. It will be considered by the relevant Mitigating Circumstances Panel (MCP).
If your evidence is accepted by the MCP, your non-submission will be deemed to be with good cause and you will be automatically re-entered to submit the assignment at the next available occasion.
This re-entry will not use up one of your rights of re-entry. Your new overall result for the course(s) will not be capped.

  • Undergraduate Non-Finalists: if your coursework non-submission was deemed to be with good cause, you will be re-entered to submit the outstanding coursework by the first day of the Late Summer examination period (26 August - 2 September 2015).
  • Undergraduate Finalists and all Postgraduate students: if your coursework non-submission was deemed to be with good cause and the resulting failed course means that you are not eligible for award, you will be re-entered to submit the outstanding coursework by the last day of Term 2 in 2015-2016 (i.e. 18 ¬†March 2016).

If your evidence is rejected, your overall result for that course will be NC - Not Completed, which is a fail. Your only option to redeem that fail will be to apply to repeat the course.

Absence from examinations 

If you are absent from one or more of your examinations for medical or other mitigating reasons, you must provide documentary evidence to justify your absence for the consideration of the relevant Mitigating Circumstances Panel.
A mitigating circumstances form is available from your Faculty Office and should be handed back to your Faculty Office with supporting evidence by 10 June 2015 for the end-of-year examinations.

If your evidence is accepted by the relevant Mitigating Circumstances Panel, your absence will be deemed to be with good cause and you will be automatically re-entered to sit the missed examination(s) at the next available occasion.
This re-entry will not use up one of your rights of re-entry. Your new overall results for the course(s) will not be capped.

  • Undergraduate Non-Finalists: if your absence from an examination was deemed to be with good cause, you will be re-entered to sit the missed examination in the Late Summer examination period (26 August - 2 September 2015).
  • Undergraduate Finalists and all Postgraduate students: if your absence from a May/June examination was deemed to be with good cause and the resulting failed course means that you are not eligible for award, you will be re-entered to sit the missed examination in May/ June 2016.

If your evidence is rejected, your overall result for that course will be NC - Not Completed, which is a fail. You will be eligible to resit the examination(s) in the next May/ June exam period. You will use one right of re-entry. Your overall result for that course unit will be capped following re-entry.
