Access Arrangements allow candidates/learners with special educational needs, disabilities or temporary injuries to access the assessment without changing the demands of the assessment. For example, readers, scribes and Braille question papers. In this way Awarding Bodies will comply with the duty of the Equality Act 2010 to make ‘reasonable adjustments’.
We can assist with all aspects of the entry procedure, including advice and guidance regarding the application . The deadline for application to the exam board is the February of the year the student sits the exams. In accordance with the Equality Act 2010.
Swansea College will make reasonable adjustments to accommodate students with access needs.
Candidates may be able to apply for extra time when taking an exam (usually 25%) or may require the use of a scribe or a computer. This will be decided by JCQ and based on evidence supplied ahead of time.
