If you have agreed Individual Exam Arrangements in place, they have been included as part of the arrangements for alternative assessment as follows. Your online exam timetable will tell you if you have IEAs in place.
Extra writing time
Extra writing time has been applied for exams of less than 23 hours 59 minutes in duration. For assessments of 23 hours 59 minutes or longer, all students have been given extra time so that you have flexibility to plan your time and work on your exam in a way that suits you and your circumstances. Your Department will provide guidance on how long you might expect to spend on writing your answers and/or the expected length (i.e. word count) of those answers, and you can add your extra writing time to those guide times. If you feel that this arrangement has a negative impact on your performance in the exam, please submit an extenuating circumstances claim form.
Extra non-writing time
Extra non-writing time has been applied for exams of less than 23 hours 59 minutes in duration, but has not be applied for exams of 23 hours 59 minutes or over as you will be able to take more frequent and longer breaks during the exam. If you feel that this has a negative impact on your performance in the exam, please submit an extenuating circumstances claim form.
Students who have extra equipment they now don't have access to (ergonomic chair, a fan etc)
The University won't be able to provide this equipment for remote exams. If you feel that this has a negative impact on your performance in the exam, please complete an extenuating circumstances form.
