Deadline to apply for ‘special examination arrangements’ – Friday 16 March

The deadline to apply for what are known as ‘special examination arrangements’ is Friday 16th March. It’s not guaranteed that any applications received after this date will be implemented before the main end of year exam period from Monday 30 April to Friday 8 June.


The deadline only applies to exams run by Registry (separate arrangements apply to undergraduate medical and dental students – see here for more details).

The Disability and Dyslexia Service is running two drop-in sessions for students who have not been able to make an appointment during the week of the deadline: 

  • Wednesday 14 March, 2-4pm in Room 1.01, Bancroft Building, Mile End campus
  • Friday 16 March 2–4pm in Room 1.02.5, Bancroft Building, Mile End campus 

In order to apply for exam arrangements, eg extra time or the use of a computer, students must bring valid medical/diagnostic evidence with them (we can provide the other application forms at these sessions). The following advice on valid evidence is taken from the Disability and Dyslexia Service website: 

All applications for special examination arrangements must be accompanied by medical evidence in the case of a disability or a diagnostic report in the case of a student with a specific learning difficulty such as dyslexia. This evidence must be in the English language and should be dated no more than two years prior to the date on the student’s application for special examination arrangements in the case of medical evidence or after the student’s sixteenth birthday in the case of students with specific learning difficulties. 

Of course, students can continue to apply in the usual ways before the Friday 16 March, including applying online via the Disability and Dyslexia Service website.
