I can see your point - especially in my experience because I have friends who have cheated the system etc etc :/ I think my GP requested it more because of having severe panic attacks and uncontrollably crying, I get so worked up that I become quite sick etc and have been put on antipsychotics because it got so bad rather than handwriting per say, also I've spent the last year battling other mental illnesses which have affected cognitive ability - I guess I was more to do with that, and anxiety doesn't help it (kind of the icing on the cake) - sorry for coming off as blunt earlier, I'd just come home from the most horrendous exam!(Original post by rimstone)
Hmm i guess in your case it okay. But im not really the judge, And yes everyone gets anxiety and i dont see why that should lead ti extra time. Like i said, i was told by 2 school now, that extra time is a last resort, for people who would be affect by using a scribe and those who can't type well enough to use a laptop ( school over use it way too much, many teachers can't be asked to look over cases, which leads to more pople being given the option of extra time, the test tasker and speical needs overlookers,also over use extra time, even though its a last resort for the people that most need it. At the end of the day even for people with bad handwriting like myself what is extra even going to do/ why is it there, no one is going to write slower in an exam to make i easier to read, i know i wouldnt ). How does anxiety affect your writing so badly that you need extra time ? . though my view point in more on handwriting rather than anxiety. Also i dont see what gains there are for someone with anxiety to get extra time. personally as someone who refused it countless times, i think everyone should have a fair chance,.... if your anxiety is that bad, then well okay you should have it, but im most cases, anxiety isnt a good enough excuse, since anxiety occurs for everyone and anyone. In your case its a chemical imbalance rather than you just claiming anxiety,, so i guess extra time is okay, but i dont see how extra time is going to help....
