 Special Tests/Exams


Absenteeism from tests is dealt with on a module-by-module basis.

 Some modules make provision for sick/special tests.  In such a case, you will have to apply for a sick/special test, if you have a good enough reason (medical or special circumstances) for having missed the original test.  You must also provide documentary evidence which proves that you have a bona fide excuse. There is a prescribed form, available online, which you have to complete when applying for a sick/special test.

Other modules make provision for optional tests. In such a case, you have the right to (and probably will have to) make up for the test you missed by writing the optional or deferred test.  Here no application is necessary and no explanation for your having missed the original test is usually expected.  Please note that there are no sick tests on optional tests.
