IMPAIRMENT OF PERFORMANCE

Impaired examination performance refers to exceptional personal circumstances which may have adversely affected a student’s performance in a particular examination.

Below is the process for considering impaired performance.

  1. The student should submit a Personal Circumstances Form (PCF) to the relevant Head of Department later than three working days after the last scheduled examination. The PCF must be accompanied by evidence regarding the circumstances e.g. doctor note/death notice/Counsellor note.
  2. PCF forms are available on student.gmit.ie or pop down to the SU office.
  3. Students should keep a record of all documentation submitted.
  4. The Head of Department will be responsible for bringing the application to the Progression & Awards Board. At all times, necessary confidentiality regarding the student’s circumstances, and respect for the professional opinion expressed in supporting documentation, will be observed.
