    I currently suffer with mental health and I get exam arrangements because of this which is fine, but about 2 years ago I was a victim of a crime and recently the perpetrator has been caught and I'm now in the middle of a court case and police stuff and I've been advised to seek extenuating circumstances for my exams to ease it slightly for me, will this actually increase my score or what? It's just a lot of stress and my tutor won't reply to my emails and the website only said about coursework don't know what to do! Would it even be accepted?

    Talk to your student rep, ring or go to your department in person. they dont give you extra marks, but they will take it into consideration and come up with a solution they think fair. They probably have a form to fill out or a procedure to follow. You cna bypass your tutor as an admin person cna give you the form or direct you to the orrect person.

    If the uni do not know about this, then it would be wise to have a small summary of whats happened as well as some official verification from the police, your solicitor, counselor, GPas support..
