As you were not in court for some reason there is no way that you would have known that the date was not 8 August. Yes, this can be amended under the slip rule.
Remember, courts don’t like litigants not turning up at hearings
you should have been advised by the solicitor that the solicitor was asking for
it to be amended. There is no reason to be honest for the solicitor big to be
correct way (quicker and cheaper) is to make an application to extend the time
on the basis that you were under the impression the court had ordered the
evidence to be in by 8 August as per the court order and that the defendant
solicitor did not advise you they were applying to have the order amended under
the slip rule.
it is never a good idea to send in evidence on the deadline.
