If you have a medical, physical or mental health condition, or a learning support need which you feel will impact your exams, you should consider applying for an Individual Exam Adjustment (IEA).

What can you do?

If your issue is ongoing and likely to affect you for the duration of your programme, you can apply for Long Term IEAs which will remain in place for all of your exams. You will need to contact the Disability and Wellbeing Service (DWS) and go over the application with them. This will often be done at the same time as your Inclusion Plan. It would be a good idea to bring along documentation of your condition to this meeting. There are deadlines to submit your application, generally a few months in advance of your exams but we recommend contacting the DWS as soon as possible.

If you experience a short term or unexpected medical condition which you feel will affect your exams (not your revision, purely the exam itself), you can apply for short term IEAs. You will need to complete this application form and submit it to the Students Services Centre along with any relevant evidence. You should submit this application as soon as you are aware of your condition.
