Specific Provisions for Examinations

Please be aware that any previous exam adjustments that you may have had in place at school and/or college will not automatically be put in place at the University and adjustments will only be made following an appointment with Wellbeing Services.

If you require specific provisions for examinations, we ask that you request an appointment with Wellbeing Services by the dates below:

Friday 4th November 2016 for January exams,

Friday 17th February 2017 for May exams and

Friday 30th June 2017 for referred/deferred exams.

Wellbeing Services experiences a high demand for appointments at the beginning of term and prior to exams deadlines. There may be occasions where you request an appointment with Wellbeing Services prior to the deadline date, but due to a high demand of appointments you are unable to be offered an appointment until after the deadline date. Should this occur, then your advisor and the Examinations team will still be able to set up your exam adjustments and this will be confirmed at your appointment.

Please see the section ‘What to do if you have missed the deadline’ below for further advice and guidance.

Prospective Student

If you are a prospective student, who has declared to us a health issue or disability, or may be planning to, it is important you complete our prospective student online form so you can inform us of your specific needs for exams.

Current Student

If you are a current student who has a disability or long term health condition and you require exam adjustments you will need to book an appointment with Wellbeing Services. Prior to the appointment you will need to obtain medical evidence which you need to bring along to your appointment with us.

If you are a current student who has a specific learning difficulty and you require exam adjustments you will need to book an appointment with Wellbeing Services. Prior to the appointment you will need to obtain post 16 Educational Psychologists Report which you need to bring along to your appointment with us.

What to do if you have missed the deadline

  • If, for whatever reason, you have been unable to request an appointment to arrange your exam provision with Wellbeing Services by the deadlines seen above, please contact Wellbeing Services immediately.
  • If you have subsequently suffered an injury that could cause you difficulty in a formal exam situation, you should contact Wellbeing Services and the Examinations Office as soon as possible with the necessary medical documentation.

Should exam arrangements not be put in place due to a missed deadline, and you feel your academic performance has been affected by your disability, health condition or specific learning condition we would advise you to speak to your College about whether you would qualify for mitigation.

Provision during Examinations

Subsequent to issuing your standard examination timetable, all students registered for specific arrangements will be sent an additional email outlining their individual arrangements. These arrangements will not appear on your online timetable but provided you are allocated a designated (SP) venue this will be in place.
