Application for Extension of Continuous Assessment Deadline(s)
It is understood that a student may, on occasion, be unable to submit assigned work by the due date, due to illness, bereavement or other unplanned event. A student may then apply for an extension of time to submit his/her work, normally for one week only, or by a date specified by the relevant lecturer. If an approved extension is not obtained, late work will be subject to a penalty (5% per working day).

The student’s overall award classification of Pass remains unchanged. The student must achieve an overall average of 50% in the subjects taken as qualifiers at the one sitting.
