10.2b How do I extend my time on the Scheme?

Your allotted time can be extended in the following circumstances:

a) where you are a Disabled Person and – as a result of your disability – you are, or will become, unable to pass the Scheme for Registration in the Allotted Time

and/or

b) where, due to Exceptional Circumstances you are, or will become, unable to pass the Scheme for Registration in the Allotted Time. 

If you are awarded an extension and then experience additional exceptional circumstances, then additional time can be added on to this extension at the discretion of the appeals panel. You cannot apply for an additional extension to your allotted time if the exceptional circumstances occurred outside of this extended time. 

Find out dates of future examination and appeal panels and their deadline dates.

To apply for an extension, fill out the form in your My College area, stating the length of extension you require, your reasons and any supporting evidence.

You will need to upload any supporting evidence in pdf format.
