File Assessed Work Cover Sheet & Examination Arrangements
The AWCS form is handed in with all work submitted for assessment. The list of possible examination arrangements is discussed with the student. Only those that are appropriate are included on the individual student's copy of the form. The AccessAbility Centre must have evidence to support any and all adjustments that might be requested for the student. The department and examinations office are sent copies. The AWCS is issued to the student by their Study Adviser only after a thorough discussion of what would be appropriate and evidence is on file.
