Mitigating circumstances, Deferrals and extensions.
We know that sometimes your deadlines can be tough to meet, for example if you are hit by severe unexpected circumstances. Your work could be seriously affected –not only affecting your grades but rushing could lead to mistakes that lead to Academic Integrity Issues. Don’t let this be you and make sure you know the facts about extensions, deferrals and applying for mitigating circumstances which can be found through Portal or talking with your Personal Academic Tutor.
University rules allow you to ask for more time on your deadlines, be that a coursework extension or an exam deferral but you must do it before it’s too late. This is much easier than entering an appeal after you’ve had your marks back so be proactive if you find yourself in any difficulties.
