  Fit to Sit - Extenuating Circumstances

These regulations apply to all matriculated students of Edinburgh Napier University who believe that their ability to complete an assessment of any type has been adversely affected by extenuating circumstances that have had a detrimental effect on their academic studies or progression.

Please note that this information supersedes the extenuating circumstances information in section five of your programme handbook.

For full details of our guidance on extensions, deferral of assessments, extenuating circumstances and academic appeals procedures, please click here.​  

These arrangements ​are in place for all trimester 2 assessments and for awards being classified at the end of trimester 2.

Many module leaders have already offered all students on their modules an extension to the originally set coursework hand in dates. If you need a short extension over and above anything offered to the whole class, please use the RE1 form​
to request this.
