There are times when the impact of an ongoing disability or condition can affect performance in an exam. Here are some examples which demonstrate why adjustments may be necessary:
If you feel you need some additional support, the University may be able to put in place some adjustments for your exams such as additional time, the use of a computer rather than handwriting, the exam paper in an alternative format or the provision of a support worker.
Please book an appointment with a Disability Adviser as soon as possible. You will need to provide evidence of your disability which can be in the form of a letter from your GP, an educational psychologist assessment or a report from a medical or clinical practitioner. You will also need to register with the service which you can do by completing the registration form.
You need to provide evidence by 8 December 2020 for support to be put in place for any exams in January 2021.
To make an appointment with a Disability Adviser, please contact iPoint:
Appointments are currently offered via telephone or video. Please pass on your availability and whether you’d prefer a telephone or video appointment. If you’d prefer a telephone appointment, please include the best telephone number to reach you on.
If you already have a Personal Learning Support Plan (PLSP) in place which states the support you require in exams; you do not need to contact Disability Services but check with your academic school that they are aware of your exam adjustments.
If you have any general enquiries about exam support, please email email@example.com with the subject 'Exam Support'.
