For Students Requiring Assistance
Reasonable accommodations can be made available to students with dyslexia when sitting examinations. The accommodations are intended to limit the impact of the candidate’s disability on their exam performance, while not giving the candidate any unfair advantage.
The options students with dyslexia can apply for if they meet the criteria are:
Waiver from the assessment of spelling, grammar and punctuation in the language subjects
Use of a Recording Device or Word Processor/Laptop (occasionally voice dictation)
The most commonly used assistive technology option for students with dyslexia is a computer/laptop. Reading Pens are also an option.
It must be already being used by the student (therefore the student could use their own equipment and there would be no additional cost to its approval for use in an exam.)
The ILI are satisfied that this will not jeopardise the integrity of the exam.
It requires no development work from the ILI in relation to its exam papers.
For example, a small number of students have used voice dictation software for their exams.
