If difficult personal circumstances have prevented you from taking examinations, you can apply for an extension to the time limit.
We will consider each individual case carefully, but cannot guarantee that an extension to the time limit will be granted. We can only grant requests for extension under the most extenuating of circumstances such as critical illness or bereavement after long term care.
The maximum extension we can grant under any circumstances is one year (four exam sessions). We can only grant one request for extension per student.
Please be aware that expired results cannot be extended once they have expired and converted exemptions will not be extended.
How to make a request for extension
It’s important to make your request during the correct extension request window, which will be dictated by the expiry date of your exam. Requests may be submitted from results release day of the session BEFORE your exam is due to expire, and all extension requests must be made by the standard entry closing date of the session your exam will expire.
My SBL exam expires in December 2020, therefore my extension window will open on the day September 2020 results are released and I must have submitted my extension request by the December 2020 standard entry closing date.
