Examination adjustments

UCL will make reasonable adjustments to assessment to support students who are disabled or have any other health condition that may impact on their exams.

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. 

Read full information about exam adjustments and apply.


Application deadlines

If we are already aware of your need for examination adjustments, 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, or you need to make an amendment to your existing adjustments, applications must be received by UCL Student Support and Wellbeing at least 3 weeks before the start of the exam period in question (the main examination period or the Late Summer Assessment period). 

2020 deadlines 

Requests for examination adjustment arrangements for the main examination period must be agreed by a UCL disability adviser no later than 3 weeks before the start of the main examination period. 
For the Late Summer Assessment period, requests must be received no later than 3 weeks before the start of the Late Summer Assessment period.
Requests for examinations outside the main examination period or Late Summer Assessment period must be submitted at least 6 weeks in advance.

 

Applications made after the publication of the exam timetable

Please note that 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 Adjustments), which has been or will be issued to you by UCL Student Support and Wellbeing. 

If you have any queries relating to the examination adjustments that you have been assessed for, please contact Student Support and Wellbeing directly through the askUCL enquiries system.

Exams at other times of the year 

Outside of the main examination period and the Late Summer Assessment period, any examinations you may have will be organised by your home or teaching department.

Please ensure that you contact the appropriate tutor or administrator if you have a departmental examination or other test to make sure they know you have exam adjustments.
