What happens if I miss a coursework deadline or an exam?
Missed coursework deadline / concerns about completing coursework on time
Work submitted after the deadline will not be accepted and will be treated as non-submission. You should speak to your Student Support Officer if you have any concerns about completing your coursework on time.
If you suspect in advance that personal circumstances may cause you to miss a deadline you should consider submitting an EER1 Exceptional Extension Request form. An Exceptional Extension form must be submitted at least 24 hours before the deadline date together with a copy of any uncompleted work and documentary evidence to support your claim.
If you have a general problem with prioritising, or working under pressure, Study Support can help you to develop practical ways of managing your time and workload.
Please contact your Student Support Officer as soon as possible. Please note that if you arrive late, you are permitted to enter an examination during the first 30 minutes, including any reading time allocated to the examination.
