Examination and Assessment Provision

The University adopts an individual approach to reasonable adjustments for assessment and examinations falling within the University's rules. For adjustments to exams (e.g. extra time) you need to be registered with Disability Services and provide us with documentary evidence.  We will then draw up a Personal Learning Support Plan which will include your exam adjustments.

The method of assessment of each module is detailed in the 1st Year Gazette available by following this link. It is important that you check that assessment methods are accessible to you. If you have any concerns, you will need to liaise with your personal tutor, School Disability Tutor or disability services.  Some adjustments may require a three-way discussion between you, your tutor and an Adviser to ensure that all programme requirements and  learning outcomes are met and that the most appropriate adjustments for you can be put in place. In some cases, approval by the professional body validating the programme will also be required.

IMPORTANT - Book in your Exam Adjustments by 8 December

The January exam timetable is now available to students online (https://www.bangor.ac.uk/ar/main/assessment/exam-timetable/)  

Students with PLSPs (Personal Learning Support Plans) must book examination adjustments prior to EVERY end of semester exam series as soon as the timetables are published. 

Email examinations@bangor.ac.uk as soon as possible and by Friday, 8 December and include the following details:

  • Your name and student ID.
  • Your year of study and the name of your degree programme.
  • The module code of exam(s) that you are taking, along with the date that they are being sat.
  • WHICH of the adjustments from your PLSP you require for each of the exams you are sitting.

Once this information has been received, an Exam Adjustment Form will be completed and e-mailed to you as confirmation that your adjustments have been made.
But, should you wish to discuss your arrangements with a member of staff from the Examinations Office, please note this on your e-mail and an appointment will be made for you.

IMPORTANT:   Please book in your arrangements as soon as possible.  If you miss the deadline (Friday, 8 December), we cannot guarantee that we can put in place your adjustments.  See: http://www.bangor.ac.uk/studentservices/disability/exams.php
