Medical items in exams

Please register medical/additional items that you will need during your exam, such as additional water, food, medication, medical monitors, inhalers, cushions or earplugs.

  • Additional items approved for exams must be in label free, clear containers or bags and operated/consumed quietly.
  • Electronic devices must be prevented from making any noise. If this is not possible, detail the noise and when it will sound in the form.
  • Alternatively, bring the items to the exam. Before the exam starts, speak to an invigilator who will give you a medical item registration form to complete.

How to apply

Step 1: Complete the Request Medical Items Allowed in Exam Form in Student Requests, making sure you have provided all details.

Step 2: Your exam place card will state what medical items you have specified that you need during the exam.

Step 3: The invigilation team will be informed of your agreed arrangements and may ask to inspect any items at the start of the exam.
