Deferral Arrangements and Special Consideration

In some exceptional circumstances where candidates have been unable to attend their examination(s) due to severe and unexpected circumstances outside of their control, the IFE will arrange for a deferral of the examination(s).  Examples of circumstances where a deferral might be arranged include unexpected and severe illness which prevents the candidate from taking the examination or the death of a close family member.  

Any candidate who has taken examinations but who has experienced unexpected adverse circumstances outside of their control that could affect their performance in the examination can apply for special consideration.  Examples of situations which could merit an application for special consideration include illness, bereavement, temporary injury, disruption to an examination by noise/emergency or problems associated with the implementation of previously agreed reasonable adjustments. 

Applications for special consideration and deferrals must be submitted,using the appropriate form by 30 October 2019 at the latest and must be accompanied by supporting evidence.  Candidates should be aware that an administration fee is charged for deferral arrangements.
