What happens next?

What will happen to my form?

A School Mitigating Circumstances Board will normally make a decision whether or not to accept your MCF/RMCF.  You will be informed by email if you have been successful or not around the same time as you get your exam results, except in the case of Retrospective Mitigating Circumstances, when you will be informed within four weeks of submitting your application form.

What happens if my MCF/RMCF is accepted?

If your MCF/RMCF is accepted, the Assessment Board for your programme can take the circumstances into consideration when making their decision regarding your progression or award (this will usually happen in June or September).  Note, even if you have passed an assessment, if you have had a MC or a RMC application accepted, the Assessment Board will take the impact of this into account when considering your results.

There are a number of possible outcomes and these are detailed in theConsideration of Mitigating Circumstances Policy
