Exam adjustments for students with disabilities, specific learning difficulties or health conditions

If you have a specific learning difficulty (such as dyslexia) or a health condition, you may be entitled to apply for exam allowances such as extra time, the use of a scribe or reader, or the use of a pc.​ Please contact Disability & Inclusion by email at disabilityandinclusion@napier.ac.uk about individual exam arrangements as these can only be put in place after approval by an adviser in this team.

Any individual exam arrangements need to be organised well before exams start, so please make any enquiries about this as early as possible. There are also ‘cut-off’ dates for each set of exams and it will not be possible to arrange exam support that has not been approved before the cut-off date.

The following dates are the cut off points for getting any allowances in place during 2017/2018

​Trimester ​​Cut off date Exam weeks​
1 23/10/2017 04/12/2017 to 16/12/2017
2​ ​5/03/2018 23/04/2018 to 05/05/2018
3​​ 23/06/2018 13/08/2018 to 24/08/2018


For further information about your eligibility visit the Disability & Inclusion pages or email disabilityandinclusion@napier.ac.uk.

Students with approved exam allowances

What to do on the day of your exam

If you have additional exam arrangements it is essential that you report to the staff based at the iPoint at either Sighthill, Merchiston or Craiglockhart, depending on where your exam is due to take place, approximately 30 minutes before your exam. The staff will be able to advise you of the room you have been allocated, please note you will not always be allocated the same room.

What to do if you are unable to attend any of your exams

It is very important that you let Student Administration know as soon as possible if you are unable to attend any of your exams. This can be done by emailing exams@napier.ac.uk. Failure to do any of the above may result in the withdrawal of additional exam allowances in future. If the above list does not provide an answer to your question, please email exams@napier.ac.uk
