Access Arrangements & Special Considerations
Access arrangements are pre-examination adjustments for students based on evidence of need and normal way of working. The nature of the arrangement required will depend on the student's individual needs and any arrangements put in place for the exam must reflect their normal way of working. Some arrangements are delegated to exams centres, others require prior accrediting body approval.
Special consideration is a post examination adjustment reflecting temporary injury, illness or other indisposition at the time of the examination/assessment. Only minor adjustments can be made to the mark awarded because to do more than this would jeopardise the standard of the examination.
AVADO Learning undertakes to ensure that, where possible and in accordance with the relevant accrediting body policy, we will apply for access arrangements or special consideration on behalf of the student. Where this is the responsibility of the student, appropriate guidance will be provided during the course.
