If you wish to apply for specific access arrangements, you will need to provide an up-to-date Specialist Educational Needs Co-ordinator or Educational Psychologist’s Report along with a JCQ Form 8 completed by the author of the report, for the application to be made.  We do not offer this service.  The JCQ Form 8 can be located here https://www.jcq.org.uk/exams-office/access-arrangements-and-special-consideration/forms/form-8-application-for-access-arrangements

Please note that we will only be able accept up to date reports which meet the current requirements laid down by the Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ). https://www.jcq.org.uk/exams-office/access-arrangements-and-special-consideration/regulations-and-guidance/acce.

Access arrangements will only be granted when all the provided documentation has been submitted to the awarding body, and they alone can grant permission to allow changes to exam access, such as extra time.  Their decision on this is final and non-negotiable.  This may take several weeks so please leave plenty of time for this process.
