Access Arrangements and Exam Concessions for Candidates with Special Needs

If you wish to apply for exam concessions, there is a charge of £50 to cover the costs of an assessment to be held here at the College. An assessment should be completed within two weeks of the enrolment session to guarantee that the examination body can accommodate your needs. The examination body cannot guarantee special access arrangements after this time. Following the outcome of the assessment, there may be additional costs depending on the needs of the candidate.

Please pay for the ‘Access Arrangement Assessment’ item from the Online Store and bear in mind that assessments are subject to the availability of college staff to carry this work out before the deadline.
