You can apply for special consideration for a range of medical, non-medical or compassionate grounds if you experience unexpected circumstances outside your control, during or at the end of a semester that:
• prevented you from submitting assessable tasks or
• prevented you from attending an examination or
• substantially affected your performance in the above.
Examples of circumstances for which extensions may be considered include serious physical or mental illness; carer responsibility for a member of your immediate family; an unexpected, unavoidable employment commitment; death of a close family member, having been the victim of a serious crime.
