If you are experiencing difficulties which are having a significant impact on your ability to complete your assessments and you don't think a short extension will help, you may want to consider submitting a Request to repeat an assessment attempt (RRAA) via My Student Record. This is a request to undertake your assessment at a later date during the reassessment period (usually in July for standard courses).

Before you do this we strongly advise you to speak to your Student Support Adviser and watch the guidance video to ensure that you understand how to submit a request and what documents you need. You must submit your request within 5 working days of the submission deadline / date of exam and upload evidence to corroborate the nature and timing of your circumstances.  It is unlikely that your request will be approved without relevant evidence.

The Extenuating Circumstances Panel will consider your request and you will be informed of their decision by email and MSR will also be updated. Extenuating Circumstances Policy can be viewed on our Rules and Regulations.

Students with Learning Contracts

If your circumstances relate to your disability, mental health condition or medical condition and you have a Learning Contract then it may not be necessary to submit a RRAA – you should be supported through your Learning Contract. You must contact your Student Support Adviser in order to manage the reasonable adjustments stipulated in your Learning Contract.

You can access the online RRRA form via a smartphone.  If you are having difficulties, please contact a Student Support Adviser via Hallam Help at or on 0114 225 2222.
