Written exams for students with learning disabilities
Students with learning disabilities such as dyslexia or autism have the right to take written exams in a separate room. You will also get more time to finish the exam (3 hours). This also applies to retakes.
If this is your case, please send an e-mail to Anouk Everts, (3 weeks before the exam takes place, at the latest), with a cc to study advisor Femke Tomas. Moreover, you need to inform the study advisor of your situation at the beginning of your studies.
In the e-mail, please state:
- your name
- phone number
- the exams concerned: title, date and time
Also specify what you need: more time, quiet room, exams in large print, or use of a laptop (the latter is only granted in very specific cases, and has to be requested via the Board of Examiners).
* If you have registered for exams, this does not mean you are automatically entitled to do a retake. You have to apply for the retakes separately.
* If you have not applied following the procedure described above, and you are attending the exam anyway, you will be denied access to the room. In that case, you will have to take the regular exam and you will lose the right to more time, etc.
