Forms

For special consideration for assessment, you need to submit a separate application for each piece of assessment that has been affected by unforeseen circumstances.

For special consideration for late discontinuation, you can list a number of courses on one application.

Evidence

You can start an application for special consideration before obtaining all of the supporting evidence.

Medical certificates

If your application is based on medical grounds, you must have a UC medical certificate completed by a registered medical practitioner: UC Medical Certificate (PDF, 143KB). You should ensure that you see your medical practitioner within a reasonable timeframe for them to be able to make a diagnosis, and that they are provided with sufficient information regarding the timing of your assessments (if applicable) to enable them to provide beneficial supporting documentation.

Other accepted evidence

If you aren’t able to provide independent evidence for your circumstances, you must complete a statutory declaration in front of a Justice of the Peace and attach this to your application: Statutory Declaration for Special Consideration (PDF, KB87)
