Learning Support

Learning Support: Support for exams

If students require Additional Support or special arrangements during examinations, it is very important that they tell us about these as soon as possible.  Our Examinations Manager will then contact the appropriate exam board to request permission for these to be put in place. 

You may also need to supply us with a medical report or other written evidence so that this can be sent to the examination board in support of your request. 

Depending on students’ particular learning difficulty or disability, we can provide them with the following types of help:

  • Extra time allowance (where appropriate)
  • Braille or enlarged print papers
  • Individual room with a separate invigilator
  • Special lighting
  • Scribe
  • Reader
  • Use of a word processor
  • Language modified papers (where appropriate)
