If you receive additional support with your learning at school, then you are also entitled to additional support when sitting exams or carrying out assessments.
There are lots of different ways your school can help you and these arrangements should be agreed before your assessment takes place. The type of support usually reflects the kind of support you already get with your learning.
Some of the types of support you can get with your exams:
➜ A digital version of the exam paper
➜ Extra time
➜ Your exam printed on different colour paper
➜ Your exam paper enlarged
➜ A braille version of your exam
➜ Extensions to deadlines
➜ Someone to prompt you during your exam to help keep you on track
➜ Someone to read the exam questions to you
➜ Completing your exam in a separate room to other pupils
➜ Supervised breaks or rest periods.
Exams can be a stressful time, so it’s important to look after yourself as best you can.
