Personal Extenuating Circumstances - also known as PEC - is the process to use if your studies or assessments are seriously affected by unforeseen and unavoidable circumstances.

If you believe your study or ability to complete assessments is being seriously affected by things beyond your control, you should advise your academic unit by completing the Personal Extenuating Circumstances (PEC) Form so that appropriate adjustments can be considered.

Your application will be considered in strictest confidence. It’s important you provide full details and independent evidence.

This video takes you through why you might need to submit PEC, what you will need, and talks through the process of filling out the application.
