Alternative exam arrangements - deadline for August resits
Are you new to the University?
So that we can help you make the most of your studies, please tell us about yourself. You should contact us if you have a disability, mental health difficulty, long-term medical condition, autistic spectrum condition, or a specific learning difference such as dyslexia, dyspraxia, dyscalculia or ADHD.
Where possible please make sure you have sent your evidence and completed Your Essential Information Form so we know you require alternative arrangements in exams and teaching.
Information on how to share your evidence and clarification of the evidence we require can be found here.
We can arrange a one-to-one appointment with a Disability Adviser or Specialist Study Support Tutor.
Unsure if you have a potential Specific Learning Difference?
If you have never been assessed for specific learning differences, we would usually suggest that you first complete a free initial online screening using the Do-It Profiler.
We offer follow-up appointments for students who might need further guidance from a Specialist Study Support Tutor about assessments for Specific Learning Differences for example dyslexia, dyspraxia, dyscalculia, ADHD. This includes:
- Students who want to discuss their Do-It Profiler results before deciding on their next steps
- Students who have been told they haven’t provided us with suitable evidence, and who are not clear on what they need to do next
- Students who would like advice on suitable assessment providers
- Students who would like more information about funding towards assessment costs
To discuss any of the above please email email@example.com to request an appointment.
