If you have up-to-date confirmation of your condition, then the University will usually consider putting in place any recommendations that an Educational Psychologist, specialist teacher, doctor or consultant makes. Once the AccessAbility Centre has a copy of your paperwork, and a member of staff has met with you to discuss the recommendations, then the examination arrangements can be put in place. Typical exam adjustments are:
- Extra time
- An amanuensis or scribe
- Coloured paper
- Enlarged fonts
- Use of a word processor
The AccessAbility Centre requests certain adjustments on your behalf, and these are then considered and put in place by the Examinations Office. It is very important that requests are made and the appropriate form filled in at the earliest possible opportunity. There is a deadline for completion of exam requests and it may not be possible to make adjustments that are requested at very short notice.
If you require any adjustments to exams, please make an appointment.
