For disabled students, timetabling adjustments and adjustments to standard examinations, such as extra time, rest breaks and scribes, can be arranged through Disability Support.
Please note: Advisers and Tutors will not be advising existing students during these first three weeks (unless urgent, please see below).
All requests for adjustments to examination arrangements must be supported by evidence:
Please note that exam stress/anxiety/panic or nerves are experienced by many students and this in itself is not normally a sufficient reason to provide adjustments.’
If you are feeling particularly anxious you can find some helpful information on the Counselling Service website: http://www.nottingham.ac.uk/counselling/documents/exam-stress-booklet.pdf and also from the University health centre: http://www.unhs.co.uk/your-health/health-and-wellbeing/mental-health/exam-and-assessment-stress.aspx.
(The following is an extract from the Examinations Office website)
To request adjustments to examination arrangements the following steps should be followed:
All students requiring alternative arrangements of any nature must be assessed by Disability Support. The assessment will also include, where necessary, the completion of a Timetabling Referral Form. School staff should refer any student with a timetabling issue directly to Disability Support as a matter of urgency, since the definitive teaching timetable is published at the end of July and there is limited scope for revisions after that date.
Disability Support will undertake an assessment with the student and will pass recommendations for timetabling to the Timetabling Office where rooms will be allocated/reallocated accordingly.
