Appeal Checklist Question 5ii

In order to appeal on grounds of extenuating circumstances, you have to have a justified reason (which is accepted by the Investigating Officer) for not having disclosed these details before your department's deadline for extenuating circumstances and before the outcome had been determined.

Students often claim that they simply didn't know about the extenuating circumstances procedure or didn't think it applied to them. It is your responsibility to be aware of all the rules, regulations and procedures of the College and your department and simply not being aware of these or thinking they do not apply are never considered valid grounds for an appeal, which will not be upheld. All students are very strongly urged to read their student handbooks and the College Regulations to be familiar with the rules and regulations.
