Extensions and special consideration
Students should note that:
- No extensions for take-home examinations will be permitted.
- Examinations will not be deferred.
Applications for an extension for research papers or assignments must be made on the Application for Extension form.
Extension requests must be directed to the Melbourne Law Masters Office and not the lecturer. These requests are assessed by the Melbourne Law Masters office in line with their policies and are not assessed by lecturers.
If a student is ill during the examination period, the student must submit their exam on time then apply for special consideration based on documented medical grounds.
An extension on grounds other than medical grounds may attract a penalty of up to one grade.
Students who have experienced illness or other difficulties that have substantially hampered their work for an examination can apply for Special Consideration but should still attempt to submit the assessment. Special consideration should be applied for online:
Under the Admin Tab, go to 'Exams and Assessment' and click on the link to "Apply for Special Consideration".
Students must submit an online application for special consideration no later than 3 working days after the date of submission for the last piece of assessment or it will be considered late. You have 5 working days to submit the associated Health Professional Report (HPR) form (illness) or statutory declaration (other difficulties) once the application has been registered online.
Please refer to the Melbourne Law Masters course rules for further information.
