Feeling unwell and have an assessment coming up? You may wish to consider applying for special consideration.

What is Special Consideration?

Special consideration is the process for assessing the impact of short-term events beyond your control (exceptional circumstances), on your performance in a specific assessment task. You can find more detail in the UNSW Application and Assessment Information document.

The Special Consideration process does not apply to Higher Degree Research Candidates. Research candidates should refer to the GRS website and can seek advice directly from their Candidature Management Officer.
