Have you any medical or other problems affecting assessment?
If you have serious medical problems or other personal problems which may affect your academic performance it is your responsibility to draw this to the attention of your department at the earliest opportunity. You will need to complete a Serious Adverse Circumstances form and return it to your department and, where appropriate, you must provide evidence such as a doctor’s certificate.
You should make use of the appropriate channels of communication available within your department and college of make staff aware of your difficulties. Boards of Examiners are able, within limits, to take such problems into account when confirming examination results for the year, but they can only do this if they have been informed of your situation in advance of the meeting.
Your department can tell you when the relevant Board of Examiners will meet. You should also refer to the information in your Preliminary Honours Faculty Handbook about ‘Illness and Boards of Examiners’.
