Guidance for staff

Individual Mitigating Circumstances are defined as conditions which temporarily prevent students from undertaking assessment or significantly impair their performance in assessment: as such, the measure of their severity is not about impact on the student, but impact on the student's assessment. The IMC procedures described on this website and in the documents linked to it apply to all students registered for a Bath qualification, including those based away from the University.

IMCs are different from ongoing or long-term conditions, such as long-term illness or disability, for which students should seek support from the Disability Advice team.
