Examination Access Arrangements

Do you need access arrangements for your exams?

You need to contact the Health and Wellbeing team to ensure this support is in place. There’s an application deadline before each of the main exam periods in January, May and August. The deadline is 6 working weeks before the exam period.

To help you, we set a reminder on the plasma screens (all campuses) 2 weeks before the deadline. The reminder runs for two weeks.

You must meet with a Health & Well-being Advisor to discuss your needs. You will need to provide acceptable evidence.  Appointments in the week before the deadline get very busy so please contact the Health & Well-being Team early.

Do you already receive support from the Health and Wellbeing team?

If you already receive support for a disability, your arrangements will be included in your Learning and Teaching Support Agreement (LTSA) so you don’t have to contact us for each set of exams. This arrangement stays in place for the duration of your study unless your needs change.

Who organises the exam access arrangements?

The Exams Office organise the access arrangements for formal exams based on the information provided by the Health & Well-being Team.  Your unit tutors put in place arrangements for in-class tests. They will use the information on your LTSA to implement your arrangements.

Still not sure? Contact the Health & Well-being Team for advice.
