Dispensations are requests to Education Committee for the normal limits and rules set out in the Examination Regulations to be set aside for individual students, generally due to extenuating circumstances.

Education Committee’s powers in this respect are set out in Council Regulations. A dispensations application form is available to download below and should be used for all requests. Completed forms should be sent to edcapplications@admin.ox.ac.uk. Further guidance on dispensations can be found below.


Appeals against a decision made by Education Committee

An applicant who is dissatisfied with a decision made on behalf of Education Committee may appeal against it within 14 days of the date of the decision. The college or department may make the appeal on the student’s behalf, or the student may make the appeal on their own behalf. Any such appeal must be made in writing. The appeal will be heard by two members of Education Committee with no previous connection with the case.
