Exam Access Arrangements

Assessments for Exam Access Arrangements (e.g. extra time, a reader) are administered by a specialist teacher holding a current Assessment Practising Certificate who is a “named assessor” for several Sheffield schools and colleges.

Assessment for exam access arrangements can be undertaken from the beginning of Year 9.

As stipulated by the Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ), a completed Form 8 Section A should be obtained from the school/college before the assessment takes place.
Please contact us for advice if this is likely to prove difficult.

Please note that this service is usually only necessary if more specialist testing is required than can be provided by the school or college themselves.

Please also note that this level of assessment does not provide enough evidence for a diagnosis of a specific learning difficulty.
