Please note: It is important to discuss any mitigating circumstances during your appointment time with your counsellor - ensure you have time to explore it fully in your allocated session time if you want to request the counsellor considers writing a supporting statement.
We are not able to support mitigating circumstances unless you have been engaged with the counselling service (ie before your exam period). It is not acceptable to request an appointment solely for the purpose of seeking a statement.
Please ensure you allow 10 days for the counsellor to consider and process your mitigating circumstances request.
