Mitigating Circumstances

Mitigating Circumstances procedure for Trimester B 2020-21


Mitigating Circumstances forms for Trimester B 2020-21 should be submitted online using the link below, before the deadline on Friday 28th May.


If unforeseen personal or medical circumstances have impacted on your ability to complete and/or submit your assessments this trimester then you can complete the online form to let the university know, and to ask for this to be taken into account when deciding on your results.


The requirement to provide supporting evidence has been suspended, however you are required to provide a declaration clearly stating the ways in which your circumstances meet the criteria of being  "exceptional, serious, acute and unforeseen".  


We would strongly advise that you wait until your all of your assessment deadlines have passed before submitting a Mits form - as long as this is before the 28th May deadline.  This is because there is only one submission allowed per student, per trimester and if you submit too soon you may not be able to add to the information later (for example if further assessments are impacted after your have submitted the form).


As long as the formis submitted by the deadline, there is no benefit to submitting it earlier, as forms are not considered until after this date.


Further information on this and the link to the online MITS application form can be found at:

If you require any advice or guidance with completing the form please contact the Advice Centre: or 0141 273 1650.
