Access Arrangements

Access arrangements are how ‘reasonable adjustments’ are made for pupils who have a disability, special educational need or temporary injury that has a substantial effect on their performance in an assessment.
Access arrangements are based on need and must reflect the pupil’s normal way of working on a regular basis when taking tests and exams as observed in school over a period of time.
Where possible, access arrangements which enable a young person to work independently are encouraged e.g. using a computer reader instead of a reader. This also helps prepare for further education.

Below you will further information from the Education Authority about access arrangements during exams and assessments.
