Reasons and documentation
Special consideration applications must be substantiated through the provision of appropriate documentary evidence. This evidence normally must be provided by an independent third party (i.e. not by a member of the applicant’s family). The timing of the circumstance must be relevant, it must coincide with:
- a reasonable time period for preparation of an assessment task,
- the submission date for an assessment task,
- a reasonable period of study for an examination or test or
- the sitting date for an examination or test.
If you do not have supporting documentation at the time of your application, you must provide relevant official documentary evidence within five working days from the date you submit your special consideration application. Please indicate on your application that you are in the process of obtaining supporting documentation.
Your application will be cancelled automatically if you do not provide supporting documentation within this time.
