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. 2 May 2014), together with a Late submission form (available from your Faculty Office) and supporting evidence.
Your evidence will be considered by the relevant Sub-Board of Examiners. If it is accepted, marks deducted for late submission will be partially or fully refund.

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 together with documentary evidence to justify your non-submission by the School deadline (i.e. 2 May 2014) at the very latest. It will be considered by the relevant Sub-Board of Examiners.
If your evidence is accepted by the Sub-Board, 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 results for the course(s) will not be capped.

Undergraduate students only:
  • 1st year students: 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 (28 August - 3 September 2014).
  • Non-Finalists: if your coursework non-submission was deemed to be with good cause and the resulting failed course affects your progression, you may be eligible for alternative assessment. If you have submitted evidence to justify your non-submission(s), you may apply for alternative assessment by completing the Alternative Assessment form, and handing it in to the Exams Office by 11 June 2014. If your mitigating circumstances evidence is accepted by the relevant Sub-Board of Examiners, your application for alternative assessment will be considered and any decision confirmed to you in July 2014.
  • Finalists: 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 2014-2015 (i.e. 20 ¬†March 2015).

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 Sub-Board of Examiners.
A mitigating circumstances form is available from your Faculty Office and should be handed back to your Faculty Office with supporting evidence by 11 June 2014 for the end-of-year examinations.

If your evidence is accepted by the Sub-Board of Examiners, 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.

  • 1st year students: 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 (28 August - 3 September 2014).
