Examination Adjustment Arrangements

UCL will make reasonable adjustments to learning, teaching and assessment to support students with a disability or other ongoing medical or mental health condition.

If you need support you should notify us as soon as possible so that we can put in place the adjustments that you may need.

Application deadlines

If we are already aware of your need for an examination adjustment, there is no need for you to re-apply unless there has been a change in your condition or needs.

If this is the first time that you are requesting examination adjustments, applications must be received by Student Support and Wellbeing (SSW) at least 5 weeks before the main examination period and 3 weeks before the late summer assessment examination period. For all other examinations and assessments, applications must be received by Student Support and Wellbeing 6 weeks before.

  • Examination adjustment arrangements application deadline for main examination period: 06 April 2020
  • Examination adjustment arrangements application deadline for late summer assessment examination period: 03 August 2020

Please note the following:

  • You will not be sent an additional letter from the examinations office identifying your examination adjustments. Your examination adjustments will be listed in your SORA (Summary of Reasonable Adjustment), which has been issued to you by Student Support and Wellbeing. If you have any queries relating to the examination adjustment that you have been assessed for, please contact Student Support and Wellbeing directly.
  • Outside of these dates, any examinations you may have will be organised by your home or teaching department. Please ensure that you contact the appropriate tutor/administrator if you have a departmental examination or other test to make sure they know you have special exam arrangements.

Late applications

We will only consider applications for examination adjustment arrangements received after the deadlines above if you have suffered from a sudden illness or an accidental injury. 

Applications in this instance must be received by Student Support and Wellbeing no later than 7 calendar days before your examination. If your late application is received after this deadline, then you will need to apply for a deferral to the next normal exam period under the extenuating circumstances regulations.
