Exams and assessment

Special arrangements for exams

If you wish to speak to someone about special arrangements for exams contact exams@yorksj.ac.uk

Individual arrangements for exams

If you have declared a long-term health condition, impairment, a specific learning difficulty, or a mental health condition you may be entitled to access additional arrangements for your examinations. If you have individual arrangements you will receive an email from Registry confirming the arrangements at least two weeks before each examination period.

The Disability Advice Team must make recommendations for examinations, underpinned by evidence, no later than five weeks before the exam period in order for the Assessment Team to be able to guarantee the alternative exam arrangements will be able to be put in place for centrally organised exams.

If you have not already provided the Learning Support Service with appropriate documentation please arrange an appointment to discuss any alternative arrangements. To book an appointment please go to the Student Information Desk, call 01904 876477 or email disabilityadvice@yorsksj.ac.uk.

Request for religious observance and exams

If you are unable to take an examination on the day it is timetabled for religious reasons (e.g. a major festival or Friday Prayers) you must contact exams@yorksj.ac.uk.

Arrangements for examinations and assessments will take your needs into account as far as possible in respect of the observance of a religious day of rest or holy days although it is not possible to guarantee to avoid all such days.

You are required to notify us of your inability to carry out work or undertake assessments on holy days as soon as possible after enrolment and by no later than six weeks from the start of the programme.
