Mitigation

If you feel illness or other adverse personal circumstances may affect your ability to undertake an assessment you may be able to apply for an extension or a deferral through what the University calls the ‘Mitigation Process’. Please carefully consider the guidance below on this process, including the guidance provided in the TQA manual , it is important that you read this document carefully. Please note that for Term 3/Exam Replacement assessments, we are unable to offer extensions and instead a deferral will be put in place. If you have any questions about this process please contact your Hub. You can also get independent advice from the Students’ Guild and Student’s Union Advice Units.

The University’s stance is that there is no further requirement for evidence to be submitted throughout the duration of the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

MITIGATION UPDATE - 2nd MAY 2020

The opportunity to defer all remaining assessments via the expedited application form has now closed – applicants will receive confirmation of deferrals in due course from their HUB team via email.

You can still apply for mitigation for individual assessments as per the following:

  • Deferrals for exam alternatives (options 1, 2 and/or 3)
  • Extensions or deferrals for remaining Term 3 coursework

Deferrals (coursework or exam alternatives)

If you are applying for a deferral for any Term 3 assessment, you may request to defer to the next assessment window (August 2020).

Extensions (coursework only)

For remaining coursework assessments due in Term 3, if you are unable to submit those assessments you can request a further extension or deferral.  We will grant extensions where we can. Where extensions are not possible or appropriate we will offer you a deferral of the assignment to the next assessment window (August 2020).

Tier 4 Students

Mitigation forms MUST be submitted to your Hub Team (see e-mail addresses below) as soon as possible and at the latest within one working day of the affected assessment submission date. You should expect a response from us within five working days (a decision may take longer, due to current exceptionally high volumes we may need flexibility on this timeframe)

Do not leave work until the last minute. Give yourself sufficient time to allow for problems occurring, so you do not miss deadlines. Computer issues are currently considered applicable reasons for extensions – however, ensure you back up your work on a memory stick or another server. Please also ensure that you leave yourself plenty of time to submit via Ebart/Turnitin, as applicable.
