The following section outlines the standard examination provision for all students. Any student who is assessed by the Dyslexia and SpLD Team or Disability Team as requiring a reasonable adjustment to their examination provision will be granted alternative provision. The provision granted will be what is stated on the memo submitted to the Exams Office by the alternative provision deadline. Where the memo does not list any adjustment, the student will receive the standard examination provision outlined below.
This section relates to summative in-class tests (that is an in-class test which counts for marks towards the module’s overall assessment). For other forms of assessments that take place during class time where the following regulations would be inappropriate the General Regulations will apply, as well as any additional regulations and/or guidelines specific to the module.

In all cases, the student must have attended the affected examination in order to be eligible for any mitigation.
For examples of mitigation responses, please see the Problems on your exam day page.
