Sick during Examinations?
UOM Main Page
Apply - Admissions 2016




In case of illness, students are required to submit the Medical Report Form filled in by themselves and by a medical practitioner as proof of illness. This should be submitted INSTEAD of a medical certificate. 

As per normal procedure notification of absence should be made to the Faculty Office by phone or via email by NOT LATER THAN ONE HOUR AFTER THE COMMENCEMENT OF AN EXAMINATION.  Medical Reports which do not state the reason for absence are not acceptable (i.e. it is not enough for the report to state that the student was sick or unwell on a certain date).

The Medical Report, together with any other documents in support of the request, must be presented to the Faculty Office within the next 24 hours. A receipt will be issued by the Officer receiving the documents. 

The Medical Report Form is available from here.
