Examination Arrangements

If you have already sent us a copy of the dyslexia report or educational psychologist’s assessment (preferably completed after the age of sixteen) or a copy of your medical evidence …

We will arrange for you to have extra time in your exams. If you need anything further (for example, the use of a computer, reader or scribe) then you must see one of our Academic Support tutors to discuss this.

For the first three weeks of the new term we will be offering short appointments to new students only (new to the University and to our service). You can book a short 30 minute appointment with us. Please bring your medical evidence or report to the appointment for your support needs to be assessed. You will need to come to sign up at the Portland Building at University Park on the C floor landing outside the Disability Support corridor at University Park:

Week one: Monday 25th September – Friday 1st October from 10.00 until 16.00 (final session starting at 15.30); Week two: Monday 2nd October – Friday 6th October from 10.00 until 16.00 (final session starting at 15.30); Week three: Monday 9th October – Friday 13th October from 12.00 until 14.30 (final session starting at 14.00).

Other campus locations: Sign-up for an appointment at the Student Service Centre – the Barn on Sutton Bonington Campus, A9 Main Building on Wednesday 27th September; Wednesday 4th October; and Wednesday 11th October between 11.00 and 14.30 (final session starting at 14.00)

In the week before the University exam adjustments deadline, there may also be short appointments available for you to give your evidence to Academic Support. The Events sidebar on Support for Your Studies page will be updated with this information each semester.

If you have previously had extra time in your exams but you do not have a copy of your evidence...

You will need to make an appointment with an Academic Support tutor to discuss your options. 

If you think you may be dyslexic but have never had a formal assessment...

Please contact Academic Support.  You can find more about the process by visiting our formal assessment page: Screening and Formal Assessment for Dyslexia.
