Exam arrangements

The university's Examinations Office organises formal exams at De Montfort University.

The Examinations Office gives details of what the team does, relevant deadlines and how to contact them. The pages also include information for students who have a short-term condition, not a disability or long-term condition.

Individual examination arrangements may be made for disabled students who cannot sit an exam under standard conditions. Individual examination arrangements may include:

  • Extra time
  • Use of a reader
  • Use of a scribe
  • Use of a computer and any additional software

This is not a complete list, but is an indication of support that may be available.

Many disabled students have a formal recommendation from a suitably qualified professional for individual exam arrangements, and may have had these arrangements previously at school or college. Students must request these before the relevant deadline to make sure they are in place; they can do this by booking a Quick Query appointment through MyGateway. Please bring any medical evidence or psychological assessment to this appointment.
