The outcome of your special consideration application will be sent to your University email address within four working days.
The outcome email you receive will provide further information about the decision that was made regarding your consideration. If your application is approved, we'll provide information on the consideration granted. If it is declined, you'll receive information about the reason and your options. If you still have questions about the outcome, contact the Student Centre.
If you are able to do so, you should continue to work on and submit your assessments or prepare to sit for your exams, after you've submitted your application. Not all applications are approved.
If you fail to attend a final exam or placement and your application is declined, the result is most likely a mark of zero for the assessment and, if the assessment is compulsory, an ‘Absent Fail’ grade for the unit of study.
An application cannot be changed once submitted, but you can ask to withdraw one or more requests in your application. You can do this at any time before the release of results for that assessment or the delivery of a replacement assessment, whichever occurs first.
To withdraw an application:
If you submit your withdrawal before a consideration has been applied, the status for that unit of study will change to 'Withdrawn' and you will receive an email.
If you submit your withdrawal after a consideration has been applied, the status will change to 'In Progress' and you will receive an email once a decision on your withdrawal request has been made.
If you feel you have genuine grounds to contest a decision or the form of consideration granted, you may apply to have the decision reviewed. You will need to follow the University’s three-stage academic appeals process.
