If you let us know about your specific requirements, we will liaise with examining/validating bodies on your behalf. We will, when appropriate and within the rules of each awarding body, arrange the following:
- Computer facilities with Spell Checker can be made available for registered dyslexic students in a separate room during examinations.
- Scribed evidence towards examinations/assessments will be provided after negotiation with students, Examining Bodies and External Verifiers, where appropriate. Spoken examination questions can sometimes be arranged, with the appropriate examiner present. Additional time is granted at an appropriate rate dependent upon circumstances.
- Separate rooms are provided when circumstances demand. Doctor’s certification is required before this facility is granted due to invigilation requirements. Speak to your Tutor/Year Manager or staff in the Academic Skills Centre as soon as practicable.
We recognise the importance of providing all of our students, both Higher Education and Further Education, with high quality tuition and support.Read more
