If you are very unwell on the day of your exam, or there are exceptional circumstances beyond your control that impact your ability to sit for your exam you should not attend your exam and apply for Special consideration. The Higher Education Examinations Procedure states that "Students who are unwell on the day of their examination should not enter the examination room and attempt the examination; they are encouraged to apply for a deferred examination". Be aware strict timelines apply - you must submit your application no later than three working days after your exam.
