If you are having any problems while studying at York which might affect your ability to complete assigned work, you may be eligible to make a claim of 'Exceptional Circumstances affecting Assessment'. If successful, this would allow an adjustment to be made, such as an extension or further sit for the assessment affected. See the section on Exceptional Circumstances affecting Assessment for further information.
