Arrangements for Winter 2020
In the Winter exam diet, all timed exams will be allocated double the time required to complete the exam to allow for download and upload of exam papers and other material, for dealing with any technical difficulties, and to enable any students who require reasonable adjustments to have sufficient time to complete the paper. This decision also contributes to our aim of accessible assessment for all students. If you require support to arrange adjustments other than additional time e.g. reader/scribe or access, please make an appointment with a disability advisor.
What we do
Assessment of your needs
Our role is to decide with you what exam arrangements are required and to notify your department and Registry of your requirements.
All exam support arrangements are subject to appropriate and relevant professional evidence being provided by the student.
Liason with Academic Departments
We work closely and successfully with Academic Departments and Advisers of Studies to support disabled students.
Each School has a Departmental Contact (DC) responsible for addressing and promoting the needs of disabled students within their department.
What we don't do
We are not involved in making the actual arrangements e.g. booking rooms for exams, deciding on start times (for students with extra time), the arranging of invigilators or other specific details relating to your exam arrangements.
Request exam arrangements
If you require specific exam arrangements make an appointment to see a Disability Adviser, providing written medical evidence to support any requests.
Details of your individual examination requirements can be assessed by an Adviser.
What happens next?
- The provision will be recorded on your MyCampus Record.
- This is forwarded to the Registry so that the Examination Arrangements can be noted.
- The necessary arrangements for Degree Examinations will then be put in place by the Examinations Officer.
- Your subject area(s) will provide you with notification of your exam provision outlining any particular information relevant to you, including location and times of your exams.
After this deadline there is no guarantee that exam arrangements can be made.
Please arrange to see a Disability Adviser in good time prior to the deadline dates. Exam arrangements made beyond the stated date cannot be guaranteed.
