If you are experiencing difficult or extenuating circumstances you may be able to postpone taking your exams or assessments.
Apply for a deferral
To apply for a deferral of your assessment you should read Chapter 4 Section 6 of the Academic Manual which will explain the application process. This is called applying for extenuating circumstances by UCL.
The chapter includes:
Satisfactory grounds include:
- bereavement of a close relative
- academic, for example problems gaining data for a project beyond your control
- financial hardship
Any other grounds will require the approval of UCL authorities.
