Exam Access Arrangements
Exam Access Arrangements (EEA) are put in place to ensure a ‘level playing field’ for all students –
they are there to remove barriers to learning and access put there by a long term (12months +) disability as defined in the 2010 Disability Act. They are not there to add knowledge or give an
advantage or for academically weak students or students with poor exam technique.
We provide access arrangements for students with a medically diagnosed condition (ASD, dyspraxia,
visual impairment) for which we have the formal diagnosis paperwork OR for students who have
been identified by teachers and have been tested by the SEN team or external assessor.
The practical application of these arrangements are always in accordance with the annually updated
guidance from the Joint Council for Qualifications. Click the link to access: JCQ Access Arrangements 2024
