5 Exam Tips for SEND students
It is hard enough with exams but if you have special educational needs or are disabled it can be that much harder. Below I have included my top 5 tips for SEND students to help when sitting examinations.
- Tip 1: Plan ahead
- Tip 2: Know Your Rights
- Tip 3: Use Your Entitlement
Some students (Dyslexic, Autistic students etc.) have the right to extra time and/or a scribe and/or a reader. If this is the case definitely make the most of this if it will support you. Don't feel under pressure to leave when your classmates leave if you have the time my suggestion is use it.
- Tip 4: Paper in Right Format
Blind or you require the paper to be on a particular colour etc.? Arrangements can be made to have the exam paper in the format that works best for you. This should be organised prior to the exam
- Tip 5: Medical Conditions
Maybe your an SEND student that requires extra breaks (e.g. due to fatigue). You are entitled to this if agreed with previously.
