Exam Access Arrangements

If you have had support in Exams in the past (sometimes called Exam Dispensation), you may need to apply for this whilst at college. You may also need to provide evidence of what arrangements were in place for you at school to support your application.
Please note that applications for support in Exams need to be made in good time for the Exam and your teachers will need to write a short report on how you work in your lessons.

For GCSE/A-Levels the application needs to be made by 31/01/2016 and for all others it needs to be submitted no later than 6 weeks prior to the Exam.
Please discuss this with your Personal Tutor or Academic coach if you have not done so already.
