Arrangements for exams and assessment
If you have a disability, temporary medical condition, or injury that will adversely affect your performance in examinations, please contact for individual exam arrangements.
Arrangements vary depending on your requirements and supporting evidence but can include things like extra time for writing or rest breaks, advising the marker of your specific learning difficulties or autistic spectrum condition, using a computer, having someone to write/read for you and having exam papers in suitable format (eg braille, large print).
If individual exam arrangements are recommended to meet your disability related needs and there is any delay in when these will be in place for you, a named Adviser in SWIS will provide further advice and guidance to you. This might be, for example, if your exam arrangements are agreed close to an examination or main examination period.
Individual exam arrangements are brought forward automatically each year unless you have a change of registration number. If you start a new course or progress from undergraduate to postgraduate study so we can ensure your exam arrangements are brought forward
Methods of assessment vary, although most courses are assessed on written
course work such as essays, as well as examinations. Some subjects also require
practical, fieldwork or study abroad. If you wish to discuss access to
assessment, please contact us.
