What is changing
As of 1 July 2023, the temporary changes introduced to the MACA Policy as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic will be removed.
This means that students are no longer able to submit a personal statement with a signed declaration in lieu of a medical/health certificate for Medical Circumstances (Procedure 6f), or in lieu of written evidence from a person or authority for Compassionate and/or Extenuating Circumstances (Procedure 6g).
For more information, please refer to the MACA Policy.
