Mitigating Circumstances (MC) claims are there to support students who experience genuine, exceptional and serious problems or events that can affect performance in assessments.
If you feel like a personal issue or event has affected your academic performance, think about submitting an MC claim to make the University aware of your situation, enabling them to support you and take your situation into account when assessing your work.
You can find more information on MC policy and procedures here: https://www.lboro.ac.uk/students/handbook/exams/mitigating-circumstances/
Loughborough Students' Union's Student Voice can advise you and support you with submitting your MC form. More information on the Student Voice website.
