Inclusive Adjustment Provisions for on-site, in-person exams:
For any onsite exams, our exams office are piloting an opt-out system for implementing provisions, whereby your provisions are automatically applied to any in-person exams you sit during your time at Swansea, unless you are informed otherwise.
When the exam timetable is published on your intranet account, it will show your appropriate provisions exam venue, along with brief details of your provision arrangements.
If there are any provisions that you don’t want to be applied to your on-site exams, or you wish to decline your provisions all together and sit in the main venues, please email contact the Exams Office team on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Inclusive Adjustment Provisions for online exams:
If you have an Inclusive Adjustment proforma with agreed provisions for exams, for any exam that is online and 24 hours or less in duration, your extra-time and/or rest-break provisions will be automatically applied.
If you begin an online assessment and realise that you have not been given the additional time that you should have, please contact the team via StudentSupport-ScienceEngineering@swansea.ac.uk right way (ideally while the assessment is still open) so that we can investigate and correct this if necessary.
Reader Provisions: For students who usually have access to a readers for in-person examinations, this is not an applicable provision for the online assessments. However, we do suggest students review the assistive technology available to them: https://www.swansea.ac.uk/assistive-tech/.
