When you apply for Special Consideration, you must provide UNSW with sufficient and appropriate evidence that clearly shows the details of your circumstances. Your evidence must identify the:
- Circumstances: Describe the situation in as much detail as possible.
- Time frame: Include dates and length of the circumstances.
- Severity: How serious the circumstances are and how they have impacted you and your assessment performance.
The evidence you provide will be used in assessing your application, so it is very important to provide all relevant supporting documents.
For Term 1 2020, if you are not able to provide evidence to support your application, please submit your application together with a brief explanation of your circumstances. The Case Review team will then contact you directly.
If your supporting documentation is not in English, please submit this and we will attempt to have this translated. Where documentation cannot be translated, you may be asked to have this translated by a NAATI accredited translator. If this occurs, you should supply copies of the original document and a complete English translation.
Available here is a list of the common supporting documents or evidence for exceptional circumstances. This list is not final and you may have other forms of supporting documents as evidence for your circumstances.
It is recommended that you use the UNSW Professional Authority form as a supporting document for medical circumstances. Backdated or out of date medical certificates may not be accepted.
If you provide falsified documents in support of your application, then this will results in one of a range of penalties, from failure in the course to suspension or exclusion. In some cases, the matter could also be reported to ICAC.
More detailed information on Supporting Documentation for Applications can be found in the UNSW Application and Assessment Information document.
