MMU exceptional circumstancesWatch
At the moment I don't have a diagnosis as I'm seeing my doctor on Monday, but due to covid, you do not need to submit medical evidence with the claim, just your personal statement.
I have no idea what happens now, I know I'll get an answer in the next 10 days (8 because of the 2 passed since I submitted it) and I'm so confused.
They are offering a 5 day extension which would be perfect for me, but waiting 10 days to hear if I can have an extension that would have finished by the time I get the news about if seems very strange... Or am I understanding this wrong?
Any help would be appreciated
Need more help on going postgrad?
Fellow MMU student here - you’re not understanding it wrong, it’s just a silly system and the backlog is absolutely insane rn. We had a similar situation (not diss, just coursework!) on my course and we kicked off about it - we were advised to fill in the form without evidence and just act as though everything was definitely approved even if you didn’t get confirmation right away - apparently they’re not turning anyone away due to covid rn, so it should be processed no problem, it’s just taking forever because of the amount of people having issues with work and they can’t cope with the admin. People on my course submitted as if they had an extension, even without confirmation, and although the moodle said that they were submitting late they were told the tutors would just override it later when marking. Basically I’d just hang tight and act as if you’ve got the extension, they’re just rubbish at communicating any of this to students!
Nice to know I'm not the only one using it.
Thanks for the advice!
