The University acknowledges that many of you will experience disruptions and difficulties completing your assessments. We also acknowledge current circumstances may mean it is not possible to meet the usual rules and requirements when applying for aegrotat or impaired performance.
We know that the disruptions have affected all students and every assessment and therefore this will be considered during marking, without you needing to apply for impaired performance consideration.
If you were unable to attempt, submit or complete any piece of assessment or an exam, we now have an updated form for applications for aegrotat considerations during this COVID-19 emergency. The new form doesn’t need to be witnessed and you don’t need to provide any supporting documentation when you complete it unless you have them ready.
Ideally, we would like you to submit your form within the usual timeframes (within 2 weeks after the assessment was held), however we recognise this may not always be possible and will take your circumstances into account.
When reviewing your application, we will consider your ability to demonstrate sufficient learning in your other assessments. While we will be as flexible as possible, it is still expected you would have completed at least 40% of the course assessment.
Please note this form is temporary and replaces all previous forms covering health and counselling, critical personal circumstances, and attendance at a funeral. We will revert to using the other forms when the COVID-19 emergency is over.
Please also note, doctoral students whose research may be impaired as a result of COVID-19 can apply for a suspension of studies, change of candidacy from full-time to part-time or an extension of studies through the student portal.
Aegrotat consideration: to be completed if you missed an assessment held at a fixed time and place because of critical personal circumstances or illness that arose very recently.
Impaired performance consideration: to be completed if you did attend the assessment but think you were impaired by illness or other critical personal circumstances that arose very recently.
If you were unable to sit your examination because you had to attend a funeral, please download and complete the form.
