Disabled students

If you are disabled and need special exam arrangements to be put in place (for example extra time, a scribe or a separate room), contact the Disability Service as early as possible (preferably prior to the start of your course).

Don’t assume that arrangements will be made automatically

  • even if you have had individual exam arrangements in the past
  • even if you know that the University is aware of your illness, impairment or specific learning difficulty
  • particularly if you have had time out or transferred programme.

What’s involved?

We will need to arrange a needs assessment to determine the type of adjustments to exams you will need. The Disability Service will be able to arrange this for you.

Check the Assessment Regulations for full information on special exam arrangements.

Class Tests

Class tests are the responsibility of your teaching division/School. Make sure that you let your module tutor know what you need well before any class test so that arrangements can be made.
