Access arrangements is the name given to concessions given to students with a learning difficulty or disability who need additional support in exams, such as a reader, extra time or to use a computer instead of writing. There are rules that regulate exam access arrangements and different exam boards have different rules. ​


Exam access arrangements must be the way a student works in school, this is referred to as normal way of working, it is the school or educational establishment's responsibility to gather this evidence.​


If you would like your assessment to be used for access arrangements I must have a Form 8 with part 1 completed, before this assessment, this cannot be done retrospectively.​


If your school do not think you need access arrangements and  your assessment highlights difficulties then it is the schools responsibility to check that you do not need access arrangements.​​
