I've just applied to defer my EMA. Bit worried about it really. Are they very strict with what they allow? How does deferring work? I've never got a full answer to that. I guess with exams, you just defer until the next sitting. But I'm not sure how it works with EMAs. That's supposing I'm ever allowed to find out.
I send in an email explaining today, but not sure how long it takes them to come back to me. I feel awful trying to explain what's happened and why it's affected my ability to complete the bloomin' thing. I keep thinking perhaps I should have been able to do it and feel like a fraud. Fingers crossed.
Just in case anybody has a similar query in future and does a search, the answer is yes you can defer twice (provided you have the relevant medical evidence and the OU accept it) but you must sit the exam on the third go. If you fail the exam at that point, you won't be offered a resit either.
