Examinations usually take place in May / June and are organised centrally by the Student Administration and Learning Support Teams. Class tests usually take place during class time, at any point during the year and are organised by the class tutor.
If you need reasonable adjustments to examinations or class tests to be made for you, please contact Student Development and Well-being as soon as possible.
Examinations are planned well in advance, so if you need arrangements to be in place for exams in May/June, you should contact us by January at the latest. You will be asked to provide supporting documentation to confirm why adjustments are required. This may be a doctor’s letter, or a statement from School/College or an Educational Psychologist’s report.
Some examples of reasonable adjustments to examination / class test arrangements include:
If you have had examination arrangements agreed previously (e.g. at school or college), these arrangements will not be automatically be approved by the University. It is your responsibility to contact Student Development and Well-being to book an appointment to discuss arrangements. It is helpful if you can provide documentation giving details of the arrangements that were put in place at your school or college.
