IMPORTANT: Please read the following information before completing this form. In order to receive approval for a Deferred Assessment (i.e. approval to complete an assessment task or sit an examination at a later date), your application must satisfactorily demonstrate to the Director of Studies and Board of Examiners that the reason the assessment task was not able to be completed was due to exceptional circumstances outside your control.
Circumstances that may warrant approval of Deferred Assessment include, but are not limited to:
- Student injury, illness or medical condition
- Family issues (family injury or illness, bereavement etc)
- considerationfavourableCommitments to participate in other activities that warrant
- Unavoidable and unexpected work commitments (e.g. relocation)
An Application for a Deferred Assessment must be lodged with your Director of Studies BEFORE the due date of the assessment task or the date of the examination.
The only exception is where your personal circumstances (e.g. illness) have prevented this. If this is the case, you will need to provide a satisfactory explanation as to why you were unable to lodge the application before the due date and supply documentation that clearly supports your explanation within 5 working days* of the due date of assessment task or examination.
You will receive a response to your application within 3 working days* of the decision on your application being made. This will generally be at the time of publication of results.
The submission of an Application for Deferred Assessment is no guarantee that your application will be approved.
All applications MUST be accompanied by relevant documentation. If you have any questions, please contact your Director of Studies.
