Does unavoidable absence from an examination entitle me to Special Consideration?

Students may apply for special consideration if they missed part of the examination due to unforeseen circumstances but not if they were absent from the whole examination.  However, please note that any adjustment made for special consideration will always be minor in order to both safeguard the overall marking standard and not to unfairly disadvantage other candidates.  For this reason, NEBOSH recommends that students absent for more than 25% of the time allowed, should re-take the examination at a later date.
