Examination Arrangements

If you have already sent us a copy of the dyslexia report or educational psychologist’s assessment you had undertaken after your 16th birthday (post-16)…

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.

During the first two weeks of the new academic year, Academic Support tutors run pre-bookable drop-in sessions on University Park campus Monday to Friday between 9.30am and 3.30pm (finishing by 4pm).  Additional drop-in sessions are available at Sutton Bonington on the Wednesdays and Thursdays of those first two weeks. Please go to the appropriate Student Services Centre  to book these.

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 not yet given us a copy of the dyslexia report or educational psychologist’s assessment you had undertaken after your 16th birthday (post-16)…

To discuss your exam adjustments, wherever possible please use the pre-bookable drop-in sessions run by Academic Support tutors during the first two weeks of the new academic year and bring your evidence with you. The drop-in sessions run Monday to Friday between 9.30am and 3.30pm (finishing by 4pm) on University Park Campus.  Additional drop-in sessions are available at Sutton Bonington on the Wednesdays and Thursdays of those first two weeks. Please go to the appropriate Student Services Centre  to book these.

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 Support for Your Studies page events sidebar will be updated with this information each term.

If you have a copy of your assessment but it was undertaken before your 16th birthday (pre-16)...

You will need to bring your assessment report to a meeting with an Academic Support tutor, preferably via one of the pre-bookable drop-in sessions run by Academic Support tutors during the first two weeks of the new academic year. The Academic Support tutor will assess whether or not your evidence is sufficient for exam adjustments. 

The drop-in sessions run Monday to Friday between 9.30am and 3.30pm (finishing by 4pm) on University Park Campus.  Additional drop-in sessions are available at Sutton Bonington on the Wednesdays and Thursdays of those first two weeks. Please go to the appropriate Student Services Centre  to book these.

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 about booking a screening. You can find more about the process by visiting our Screening and Formal Assessment page.
