All students entitled to extra time will be accommodated in a separate/smaller venue away from the main exam halls. This will allow students to work uninterrupted by the exit of large numbers of students where they will be provided with dedicated invigilation.

If you have been granted additional time for your exams, this will only be permitted within separate or smaller venues (generally within the Tower or Dalhousie Buildings, as per your adjustments).

Exam candidates who are entitled to extra time but choose to attend an exam in the main venue (e.g. Sports Centre, Bonar Hall, Accountancy Lecture Room, main Tower IT Suites) will not be entitled to extra time in that venue. Please make sure that you attend your exam at the correct venue as per your individual timetable

If you no longer intend to sit examinations in a separate venue or wish to sit in the main venue without your allocated extra time, please contact Disability Services  so that they can amend your adjustments and inform the Examinations Office of your decision.

If you have a separate or smaller room as part of your exam adjustments and you are unable to attend your examination, please let us know by contacting the Examinations Office
