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