Examples of exam support are extra time, scribes, use of a computer, and no penalties for poor spelling or grammar.
Exam support covers a very wide range of “reasonable adjustments” that can include the following real examples:
The current exam adjustment deadline is Friday 1st November 2013.
Some of these adjustments can take time to arrange and implement, and the University generally requires any changes to exam arrangements to be implemented 6 weeks before the first exam of each cycle. It is therefore important that you discuss any specific exam requirements that you may have with a Disability Advisor well before your exams are due to commence.
As with all adjustments recommended by the Student Disability Service, they are discussed and agreed with you, before being communicated to colleagues in Registry, who run all the exams and to the Schools of the University via your personal Learning Profile.
