1) Complete an Extension Request Form.
All extension requests need to include:
a) a clear statement detailing what has happened
b) information about how this has affected your ability to submit the assessment by the deadline;
c) the number of additional days you require to complete the assessment.
d) a copy of the partially completed assessment where applicable.
You will also need to attach any supporting evidence in line with the Standards of Evidence table.
2) Discuss your request with the relevant Programme Administrator or Programme Manager.
Normally, an extension request would need to be approved by the Sub-Board Chair responsible for the course in which the assessment takes place. However, some Departments may nominate the Course Convenor or other appropriate individual to approve these requests. The Programme Administrator/Manager can either pass the form on for approval or let you know who you should pass the form to.
The following link lists each Sub-Board Chair by Department. Please note some Chairs would like all correspondence to be submitted via their secretary; where this is the case this will be clearly stated.
