Disabled Exam Provision

The deadlines for students requesting provisions in examinations are as follows:

Academic Year 2019/20

First Half Session

Friday 1  November 2019

Second Half Session

Friday 20 March 2020


Friday 5 June 2020


If you require disability-related provisions for your exams that have not already been agreed and implemented for your current course of studies, you should contact the Student Advice and Support Office to arrange support.

In order to have provisions fully considered and implemented (where possible) for the December 2019 and May 2020 exams, everything must have been agreed and recorded before the appropriate deadline dates as noted above.

After your exam provision has been agreed, you will then be contacted by your School with your specific exam arrangements shortly before the start of the examination diet.  These arrangements will also show in MyTimetable a few weeks after the main exam venue information has become available.
