Access Arrangements

The Aspire@Hanley team is responsible for deciding whether individual students are eligible for special access arrangements. Assessment needs to be carried out well in advance of any external examination.

If students are eligible for 25% extra time they will be issued with an orange card. This is left on their desk as an indication to invigilators. Students taking 25% extra time in an afternoon exam need to be aware that this may take them beyond 3.15pm and so they will need to make special transport arrangements.

If students are eligible for a scribe or reader they will sit their exam in a separate room.
