Special Consideration

Level 3 and Level 6 Professional Qualifications and Level 3 and Level 4 Legal Services Knowledge Qualifications - Examinations

Learners can apply for special consideration following an examination if they consider that they have been disadvantaged when they took the examination by illness, injury or adverse circumstances. Special consideration cannot remove the difficulty which was faced but instead attempts to go some way to assist the learner affected.

Special consideration may result in a small adjustment to the mark of the learner. The size of the adjustment depends on the individual learner's circumstances and the evidence presented. In accordance with CILEx policy, the maximum adjustment permitted is 5%.

A special consideration application does not automatically lead to a mark adjustment. Each application is considered on its merits.

Only applications which are received by the published deadlines are considered by CILEx.
