Dyslexia marking guidelines
The Individual Learning Plan (ILP) that is drawn up at AccessAbility with you may include an instruction to your department to apply dyslexia marking guidelines.
The person marking your work will take your ILP into account, and will not unduly penalise you for difficulties you may have with spelling, grammar, sentence structure, punctuation and use of vocabulary.
The marker's emphasis will be on assessing your ideas, understanding and knowledge of the topic.
Please note: this does not apply if you are studying a module where use of language is assessed, e.g. English or language degrees. This is because use of language is in this case an academic standard and cannot be compromised.
