ACCESS ARRANGEMENTS 

Access arrangements include:  extra time, readers, scribes, use of a word processor and separate invigilation.

National JCQ regulations and guidelines dictate what access arrangements students are entitled to.    If you have previously had (either here at College or at your previous school) or think you may be entitled to Access Arrangements for exams please contact Learning Support.

Access Arrangements must reflect the students normal way of working in class.

Applications for Access Arrangements for exams in Summer 2017 will not be accepted by the exam boards after 21st February  2017.  It is important that you contact learning support as early as possible in the academic year to ensure enough evidence can be collected to support your application.

Access Arrangements show on the students Learning Support Tab and the Exams Timetable pages on Insight.  Students may have more than one type of access arrangement showing to reflect the arrangements they need for different kinds of exams.  Access Arrangements prefaced with JCQ will cover all A Level, AS, A2 and GCSE exams. Seperate arrangements will be listed for BTEC exams, Functional Skills and HE qualifications.  Students should check these carefully and report any errors to Learning Support or the Student Hub.
