What to expect, how to apply for individual exam adjustments






1  If my disability/medical condition/dyslexia has adversely affected my ability to study or prepare for exams, will the Exam Board make allowances?


If the arrangements made in your Inclusion Plan have not been sufficient, you can make a submission of Exceptional Circumstances to the Exam Board.  For further information please seek advice from the Student Services Centre or see Exceptional Circumstances



2  Would information about my disability go on my record or exam transcript?

No record of your disability or any individual examination adjustments appears on transcripts or degree certificates.


3  What happens if a student becomes disabled while at LSE?

We will make every effort to facilitate completion of a course through

reasonable adjustments in the School, which we put in place through an Inclusion Plan



4  What is an Inclusion Plan?


An Inclusion Plan is LSE’s system of recording the adjustments and resources which are deemed necessary to meet the individual needs of a disabled student, based on formal medical and other evidence, with copies kept in the Disability and Wellbeing Service.  We listen to and involve the individual student in discussions and decisions about how best we can provide appropriate and support, in line with the student's preferences about disclosure.  The Inclusion Plan is copied, with the signed consent of the student, to relevant School personnel and reviewed as necessary.



5   What assistive technology is available in LSE ?

We work closely with colleagues in our Information, Management and Technology service, who can provide specialist support and a range of assistive technology for disabled students - see this guide for IT Accessibility.


There are hearing loops installed in all teaching rooms. Headsets and neck loops can be collected from DWS or the Audio visual service - Facilities for all teaching rooms can be found here
