Access arrangements will give pupils and candidates with disabilities, special educational needs or temporary injury to access the exams without changing the make up of the exam.
Eg. Scribes for help with writing, Readers for those who struggle with reading and braille question papers. Computer based exams for word processing.
The whole exercise is designed to comply with the Equality Act 2010 to make ‘Reasonable adjustments’.
The Equality act 2010 requires awarding bodies to make reasonable Access Arrangements where the disabled person would not be substantially disadvantaged in the exam.
The Reasonable adjustment for one particular person maybe totally unique and not listed in the list of available access arrangements. Including how reasonable to adjustment is will depend on a wide consideration of the needs of the exam candidate.
The limits of reasonable adjustments include unreasonable costs, time frames or the integrity or security of the exam.
Special considerations in Access arrangements include adjustment on the final grade to reflect the temporary injury, illness or other imposition at the time of the exam.
