Deferral of sitting examination(s) occurs when students are permitted to postpone the sitting of an examinations or submission of coursework until an approved future semester or academic year.
Students are permitted to defer sitting examinations if requests are made prior to the date of the examination and provided the students meet one of the following criteria:
Part-time students who have been given overseas assignments by their employers. Formal representation must be made by the employer.
Students who have been selected to represent their country on a national team. Formal representation must made by the national association.
Students who because of extenuating circumstances are unable to sit their examinations (for example, medical or bereavement of an immediate family member). Supporting documents such as letter from the University Health Centre, accident report from the Police, burial order or death certificates etc must accompany this application.
