Getting myself into a bit of (that's a lie....a lot of) a panic.
I sat my exam a few weeks ago now and had to submit an E39 form with supporting evidence due to circumstances that affected my revision period and the actual day of the exam.
What I was wondering was how the Board of Examiners actually view this? Do they have my full student academic record (all the courses I have done towards my qualification) or is it just viewed in the context of the module to which it relates?
When I took an OU module, which I completed nearly a year ago now. I was advised to put in for special circumstances due to escaping abusive exP. All I can tell you is that extenuating circumstances did appear on my module completion so be prepared with an explanation if future employers/educators see it.
From what I gather I think extenuating circumstances is just for the exam/module that they were applied for.
