Timescales for submitting your claim.

It is very important that you submit your claim within the defined timescales given in the procedure, even if you do not yet have all of your evidence. 

These timescales vary depending on which type of assessment has been affected.

Coursework submission

The earliest that you can submit your claim is

no earlier than 4 weeks before your assessment due date.

The latest that you can submit your claim is

no later than 10 working days after the assessment due date.


Exams

The earliest that you can submit your claim is

on the day of your exam.

The latest that you can submit your claim is

no later than 5 working days after the date of the exam.


Your claim must be accompanied by supporting evidence but don't miss the submission due date because you are waiting for the evidence.

If your evidence is not available at the time of submitting your claim (for instance, where you are waiting for a letter from your GP or Counsellor etc) then you should submit your claim and 'continue' through the evidence upload pages in the online system.

This is accepted by the University as long as the evidence is submitted by the due date given on your acknowledgement email – once you have your evidence you will need to go back into the online system and upload your evidence by the due date.
