Extenuating Circumstances for Prospective Applicants

Applicants who have taken an additional year (or more) to complete their qualifications and achieve the required grades (e.g. A*AA or 2.1) will be assessed under the Equality and Diversity Act 2010. To be considered, applicants must complete the Extenuating Circumstances form and provide as much relevant supporting evidence as required to support their request. Once all of the documents have been received, this will be passed on to our Extenuating Circumstances panel for review. We would not recommend submitting an application without first having your extenuating circumstances assessed/approved. 

Candidates should note that Queen Mary operates a ‘fit to sit’ policy, which means that a candidate needs to make a judgment in advance of an exam if any circumstance obtains that might impair his/her ability to perform adequately and will approach extenuating circumstance with respect to examinations being taken for the purpose of admission in the same vein.
