ASK can help you with the form if you're having any problems. This guide is designed to help you get started; you're welcome to email us a draft of your form for advice on whether there is anything else you could include.
After you've answered basic questions about yourself (name, student number etc.) in the form you will need to answer four questions about how your work was impacted:
a) Describe the problems you were facing while working on your assessment. It's helpful to make it clear when everything happened so they can match it with what was happening in your course at the time and be satisfied it would have affected your work in that assignment. If you were unwell, remember to describe your symptoms.
b) List the dates of each of your attempts.
c) Here you will need to go on to say how those problems impacted you and affected your work - for example, if a personal problem was taking you away from your studies or left you unable to concentrate, or if you weren't well enough to study.
d) Explain what steps you've taken to work on your ECs and how you can assure them this won't affect future studies - what would be different if you were given another attempt? If you had personal issues, is there anything different that would mean they wouldn't affect you the same way again?
e) Explain whether you submitted an EC claim at the time. If you did submit a claim, was it rejected or was it accepted but you needed more time? If you didn't submit a claim, why didn't you?
There is then space for you to list the evidence you're including - please see our evidence question below for suggestions.
There is then a supplementary information box, which can be left blank if you have nothing more to add. You may wish to write something here about your commitment to the course and the profession, what it means to you, and highlight any particular achievements.
