Mitigating Circumstances – online claim process for degree students
Step by Step Guide
‘PAT receives email notification that this is a Mitigating Circumstances claim for each student and they need to complete their sections via the online process. A link to the claim will be included in the email received. PAT completes their sections of the claim. When they press submit an email notification containing the link to the claim will be sent to the Mitigating Circumstances Panel Chair. Also an email notification will be sent to the student indicating the PAT has completed their sections.
Mitigating Circumstances Panel Chair receives email notification claim for each student and they need to review the claim and make the decision whether the claim is approved or otherwise. An email notification of the decision will then be sent to the student and PAT.
The decision will be recorded on all relevant module assessments in SITS by MC Administrator ready for Tier 1 exam boards.
Module leader enters marks with relevant penalties applied (Module leader to be reminded that when entering marks against MC/ML flag the MC/ML flag should not be removed).
Confirmed MC decision will be on module reports for tier 1 so ML/PL/chair/clerk have access to this.
- True mark will be recorded i.e. any late penalties lifted
- Marks agreed by exam board and resit opportunities discussed and agreed. This is recorded by the exam board clerk.
