Exam arrangements for disabled students

Information about exam arrangements for disabled students and what to do if they need changing.

We want to make sure that disabled students can complete their exams and will work with you to identify and recommend appropriate reasonable adjustments. Examples include extra time, a scribe, a separate room, rest breaks.

The video below explains more about the support you can get for your exams.

Arranging exam support

In order to obtain this support, you will need to contact Disability Advice and Guidance and provide appropriate evidence of your disability. A member of the team will then be able to discuss your individual needs and agree on your exam adjustments.

Schools and departments are responsible for implementing this recommended exam support for any exams that they arrange, for example, remote exams, mid-term exams or in-class tests. You should speak to your departmental disability contact to ensure the necessary arrangements are made.

Details of the administrative cut-off date for being able to implement exam support is available each semester from Student Administration and Support.

Changing your exam support

If you think the exam support that is in place needs changing, please contact us.
