Coursework: Claims must be submitted before the coursework deadline.
Timetabled examinations/assessments: Claims must be submitted prior to, or within seven days of, the examination.
If your claim is being made outside the EC timescales, don’t forget to provide a compelling explanation for and supporting evidence of the reasons for late submission, for example, you were in hospital.
Panels will automatically reject late claims if you don’t provide this information.
Waiting for evidence is not an acceptable reason for a late claim.
If you’re wanting to tell the University about ECs after a progression or classification Examination Board has met, the EC procedure is no longer open to you, instead the Academic Appeal procedure should be followed. Any circumstances or evidence which could have been raised before the meeting of the Board, but, without good reason, were not raised, will not be considered in the event of an Appeal.
