Medical items in exams

  • Please register medical/extra items if needed in the exam, e.g. additional water, food, medication, medical monitors and 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 noise. If not possible, detail the noise and when it will sound in the form.
    • Alternatively, bring the items to the exam and speak to an invigilator before the exam who will give you a medical item registration form to complete.

    How to apply

    Step 1 Complete the Medical items/additional requirements form, making sure you have provided all details.
    Step 2 You will have a label placed on your place card in the exam stating what you have specified.
    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.
