Some students are entitled to alternative exam arrangements due to disabilities or long-term health conditions. 这些都是在协议中规定的 残疾访问计划 (DAP).
If you would like to review or discuss your support requirements ahead of the assessment period, 请联系 残疾人服务 尽快.
If you did not have arrangements this year and think you now need them, you must meet with the 残疾人服务 尽快进行评估. Whilst we will do our best to support you we can’t guarantee your support requirements will be in place in time for the exams. Your department or the 学术注册表 will notify you if they have been able to put last minute arrangements in place.
If you’re taking a time-limited exam (a ‘fixed-time' or a ‘flexible-start’ exam, as set out on the 考试时间表, additional time may be added to your exam time based on the recommendation in your DAP. 你可能会得到:
- both extra time to complete the assessment and time for rest breaks
或者，你也可以参加 24小时的考试. 在这种情况下, 你已经有更多的时间来尝试评估了, so additional arrangements like extra time and rest breaks won’t be needed.
如果你在考试期间有任何问题, the Exams Helpline is available from 8am to 6pm British Summer Time (BST), 周一到周五, 在整个考试期间.
This additional time will be calculated by taking into account the total exam duration, 其中包括:
- the standard amount of time for the exam (the ‘expected work’ outlined on the 考试时间表 and
- 任何额外的提交时间限制(也详列于 考试时间表 和考试指导表在你的试卷前面).
例如, if you have a two-hour exam with a one-hour submission time allowance, the additional time you need will be calculated based on three hours (two hours + one hour).
Any additional time you are given for rest breaks will be calculated using the total exam duration. You won’t be given further rest breaks to cover the additional time you have been allocated.
If you’ve been given additional time to take rest breaks you should only use it to take breaks; you should not work during this time.
帮助你处理你的残疾, 你可以在考试的任何阶段休息, but you will need to take responsibility for managing the time you have been given to complete your work. Your disability advisor will be able to advise you on the best practices for doing this.
如果你要亲自参加, paper-based exam you should speak to the Invigilator before your exam starts so you can let them know how you may wish to take your rest breaks.
在休息期间，你可能希望站着或走动. However, please be mindful of other candidates if they are in the room. If you wish to leave the room during your rest break this is permitted but you must let the Invigilator know as they must accompany you. If you leave the room unaccompanied you will not be permitted to return to your desk to complete your exam.
的 additional time you are given will be incorporated into your exam time. On Inspera, you will see the extra time included within the start and end time for each of your exams approximately a week before the start of the assessment period.
If additional time does not appear to have been added to the duration of your exams, or if you think that you have not been allocated the correct amount of additional time, 请联系 您的项目管理员.
How you will know your additional time has been included for an in-person, paper-based exam
你额外的时间不会出现在你的SAMIS时间表上. You will have been allocated the time as specified on your DAP and you will have been scheduled into a room in the Chancellors’ Building.

Your Invigilator will discuss your arrangements with you when you enter the room, and if there are any discrepancies the Invigilator will contact the 学术注册表 for advice. If you have any queries about your arrangements during your exam, please let the Invigilator know. 的 Invigilator will write your end time (including additional time for breaks) on the white board at the front of the venue, so that you are aware how much time has been allocated and can manage your time accordingly.
