Candidates should contact their College Tutor if they are not registered for one of the above courses and need information on examination allowances.


Guidance notes, the application form and declaration form are available on the EAMC website which can be found here:

Queries regarding Examination Allowances for Postgraduate degrees (except PhD, MSc, MLitt and MPhil by thesis degrees) should be sent to

If a student wishes to apply for an extension to a submission deadline for assessed work, they should contact the programme administrator in the first instance. Short deadlines which would not impact on the dates on which the student’s marks would be considered by the Exam Board and Degree Committee can be considered locally. For longer extensions, students should initiate an application for an extension via their CamSIS self-service account.
