How does it work?
Access Arrangements are provisions or support given to a student in exams when a particular need has been identified.
This allows all students the equal opportunity in which to demonstrate their skills, knowledge and understanding.
An assessment to identify the students’ needs is required for students in order for them to receive Access Arrangements.
