Exam arrangements and financial support

Exam arrangements

Students who are eligible for exam arrangements because of a Specific Learning Difficulty (SpLD), disability or on-going medical condition, should contact Learning Success as early as possible to register with one of our teams in advance of the deadlines set by the Exams office. The deadline for January exams is usually in November, and the Autumn Term is a very busy period for us with appointment waiting times of up to 4 weeks.

You will need to provide the appropriate diagnostic report or medical evidence.

Students without a formal identification of an SpLD

We also offer SpLD screenings for students who believe they may have a specific learning difference. This can lead to a full diagnostic assessment if we feel there are positive indicators.
