If you believe your ability to complete an assessment of any type might be, or has been, adversely affected by mitigating circumstances, you should complete and submit a mitigating circumstances request. This is a request to be granted an  authorised absence from an assessment, or to request for an extension to a submission deadline. 
 
 
Important to know: To understand the deadlines for mitigating circumstances applications, please read the separate article Application deadlines for mitigating circumstances.
