Exceptional (aka extenuating) circumstances, a process that most universities have, allows students to inform their institution that something has impacted upon their performance. At LSE it’s slightly different.
LSE has a Fit To Sit policy. This essentially means that by attempting an assessment - even by simply entering the exam room - you are declaring yourself fit to take it. Should you later realise this was not the case, submitting an exceptional circumstances form or appeal may be not be successful.
It’s normal for stress levels to increase in exam mode. While there’s a range of support available from LSESU, LSE and De-Stress Fest, it’s important to identify if your studies are being significantly affected by stress so that you’re not being assessed unfairly.
If, for whatever reason, you feel you’re not ‘fit to sit’, there are some options available to you. These are:
1. Postponing your exams until next year - also known as deferring.
2. Ensuring that you have individual exam adjustments in place.
For more information on your options:
