Revision Nightmares

Things don’t always go to plan around exams, but don’t worry we’re here to help. 

Exenuating circumstances

If you’re experiencing difficult personal circumstances and you believe that these are affecting your academic performance, you must notify your School in writing of these ‘extenuating circumstances’, with supporting evidence as soon as possible. If something is going on with your family or you’re feeling a bit under the weather, tell your school and get a note from the doctor as soon as you can.

The exam board will need to know, so make sure you report your extenuating circumstances soon. It is important that you include a clear statement on the form explaining how and why the circumstances have had an impact on your ability to study, performance in an examination or coursework, etc. You will need to provide evidence of the circumstances to verify your claim. If you are having problems getting evidence, seek advice from Student Advice ASAP. It’s not just exams which are stressful, we know that writing coursework is stressful too, so if you’re having any problems then make sure you speak to Student Advice

Hunllefau Adolygu

Nid yw pethau o hyd yn mynd yn dda o gwmpas yr arholiadau, ond rydym ni yma i helpu. 

Amgylchiadau Esgusodol

Os ydych chi'n profi amgylchiadau personol anodd a bod hyn yn effeithio ar eich perfformiad academaidd, rhaid i chi hysbysu eich ysgol o’r 'amgylchiadau esgusodol' yn ysgrifenedig, ynghyd â thystiolaeth ategol cyn gynted â phosibl. Os oes rhywbeth yn digwydd gyda'ch teulu neu os ydych yn teimlo’n sâl, dywedwch wrth eich ysgol a chael nodyn gan y doctor cyn gynted ag y gallwch.

Bydd angen rhoi gwybod i’r bwrdd arholi, felly gwnewch yn siwr eich bod yn adrodd eich amgylchiadau esgusodol yn ddigon cynnar. Mae'n bwysig eich bod yn cynnwys datganiad clir ar y ffurflen yn esbonio sut a pham y mae’r amgylchiadau wedi effeithio ar eich gallu i astudio, perfformiad mewn arholiad neu waith cwrs, ac ati. Bydd angen i chi ddarparu tystiolaeth o’r amgylchiadau i wirio eich hawliad. Nid arholiadau’n unig sy'n achosi straen, gwyddom fod ysgrifennu gwaith cwrs yn straen hefyd, felly os ydych chi'n cael unrhyw broblemau yna gwnewch yn siwr ydych yn siarad â Chyngor i Fyfyrwyr
