Exam absences and extenuating circumstances
If you were unable to complete a coursework assessment or think that your performance in an exam or other assessment has been affected by circumstances beyond your control, you should submit an extenuating circumstances claim by the relevant deadline.
Guidance, deadlines and a link to the form can be found on the extenuating circumstances webpages.
If you have not passed the affected module(s), you will be offered another attempt at the assessment under Safety Net 2. This will be for uncapped marks and there will be no resit fee.
If you have passed the affected modules(s) the Board of Examiners will be able to consider whether further action should be taken in light of your extenuating circumstances claim which would normally include offering you further voluntary reassessment.
The Board may be limited in the action it is able to take where there are external professional or regulatory requirements or other restrictions. Contact your department if you are unsure whether your course has such external requirements or other restrictions.
If you can’t take an online exam at the scheduled date and time, please complete a Notified Absence from Exams form on MyEssex. You do not need to provide any evidence and you do not need to make an extenuating circumstances claim, you will automatically be offered an uncapped, free of charge, first sit in this assessment in September.
