Exam Support (EAA)

Exam Access Arrangements (EAA) often include a reader, scribe, word processor, rest breaks, extra time, large print or a quiet room.

If you have previously had or used exam arrangements and found them beneficial, then please contact the Learning Support Team if you would like us to apply for your current course whilst studying at LMC.  it is very likely that you’ll get the same EAA at college.

It is important that you make a request for exam arrangements as soon as possible as they must be awarded by the examining bodies several months prior to the exam taking place. If you are unsure whether you would benefit from exam arrangements or additional support, please speak to your tutor or one of the Learning Support Team. 

When applying to the exam board for any specific conditions, we may need you to acquire additional evidence in the form of a medical statement or diagnosis from a doctor, a report from a specialist teacher, or your previous access arrangements report to support our request.
