Q. What action can the Board of Examiners take?
What action can the Board of Examiners take?
PMC outcomes will be reported to the Board of Examiners. The Board of Examiners cannot estimate your potential to obtain higher marks therefore it cannot award marks for an assessment you have not taken. It can decide whether your circumstances are sufficiently serious to warrant you being given another opportunity to demonstrate your skills and competence at a time when you are fit to do so.
The Board of Examiners can take the following actions where PMCs are accepted:
- in cases of late submission of assessment, the Board can remove late submission penalties
- in cases of non-submission or absence, the Board can offer a replacement attempt; this also applies in cases where an assessment has been declared null and void. Replacement attempts will take place at the next available assessment opportunity.
