How to apply
If you will require adjusted exam arrangements you will need to register with the Disability Liaison Officer (DLO) who will explain the services available to you, and discuss with you how your disability or condition affects you in different kinds of assessment tasks.
The DLO will create an RA document for you, and send it to yourself and the faculty Student Support Adviser (SSA). You will need to send a copy to your subject coordinator and discuss any arrangements required during the session. You can find more information in the Disability Services website.
End-of-session exams are coordinated by the Exams Team in the Academic Registrar's Division (ARD). If you need adjustments made to your exams you will need to register with the DLO at least three weeks before the exam period starts.
The DLO will advise ARD of the adjustments that need to be made to your exams, and the Exams Team will contact you with further information about the arrangements that have been made for your exams.
If you do not meet the deadline for final exams, adjustments will NOT be made for exams in that exam period.
You may apply for academic consideration, either to request that your disability or medical condition be taken into consideration while marking your exam, or to request that you be granted a supplementary exam with adjustments made for your disability or medical condition.
Temporary illness or disability
You may find that you have a temporary illness or disability, for example a broken wrist, which may happen just before a scheduled exam.
Deadlines still apply in this situation. If you miss the deadline, you can apply for academic consideration, either to request that your temporary condition be taken into consideration while marking your exam, or to request that you be granted a supplementary exam with adjustments made for your condition.
If you request a supplementary exam you will need to apply for academic consideration via SOLS, and ensure that the DLO is aware that you will need adjusted arrangements for your supplementary exams.
