Extenuating circumstances

The Extenuating Circumstances Policy allows you to inform your Faculty of circumstances which have affected your performance in an assessment or exam.

Unfortunately, there are occasions when circumstances beyond your control may affect your performance in an exam or assessment, meaning that the assessment is not a reflection of your ability. During these situations, it may be appropriate to consider applying for extenuating circumstances. 

Depending upon the nature and severity of these circumstances, your Faculty may wish to take them into consideration. If you would like support in submitting a claim, understanding if you have a claim or any other questions, the Greenwich Students' Union Advice Team are there to help you.
