Reasonable Adjustments

If you have been in contact with the Disability Service you can now check that agreed exam adjustments have been put in place. Log in to your UWE Portal (myUWE) and under the Personal Details tab there is now a Reasonable Adjustments section where you can check your agreed adjustments.

Follow the link for additional guidance on the myUWE Personal Details subtab. If there are any discrepancies please book in to speak to a Disability Adviser through any of the UWE Information Points.

Please note your timetable will only show the standard duration of the exam and not the extra time. Your Invigilator will have information in the exam room with regards to your adjustments.
