Disabled Exam Provision

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

Academic Year 2020/21

First Half Session

Friday 6  November 2020

Second Half Session

Friday 26 March 2021

If you require disability-related provisions for your exams/assessments 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 2020 and May 2021 exams/assessments, everything must have been agreed and recorded before the appropriate deadline dates as noted above.

After your exam/assessment 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.

Where you find any problems with your exam timetable, please email
