    Im exactly the same. Both my Exams this week (English lit and maths) I ran out of time just because I write and process things slowly. Im not diagnosed as dyslexic or anything so I never thought id qualify for extra time. If I applied now do you think id be eligible and that they'd be able to put it in place in time for the rest of my exams?
    No. You're about two months too late for applying for extra time - there's no way they would make arrangements now even for someone with a genuine medical issue.

    Also, extra time isn't just for being slow and not finishing exams - that would be an insult to people who work hard on time management. If you aren't dyslexic, and you don't have any related condition, then you are not eligible.

    Depends on the subject. Sciences if you don't miss too many questions you can still get a good grade. Stuff like geography is much harder however because missing a question say in unit 2 will lose you around 1/7 of the marks and it is hard to get very high marks in a question (missing a single question can make you drop 3 grades).

    Advice I would give is look at time available and the number of available marks. Compare these to then see how much time you should spend per mark (e.g. 50 marks in a 100 minute paper, only spend up to two minutes per mark, so 6 minutes on a 3 mark question).

    How can you get marks if they have nothing to mark? It's unfortunate that you don't complete the exam, yes, but to try and avoid that situation happening then attempt to do multiple past papers within an allotted time to work on your writing speed.

    A good skill is to look at the clock and if you're running out of time narrow things down to the core things, there's no time to go into things in detail but focus on getting the main points without rambling on with the hope of picking up marks. If then you still have little time left, try and add an extra sentence or two.

    You can get extra time due to having bad time management? Wtf
    No. Its if you have problems CAUSING bad time manegement
    e.g ADHD (why i have it)
    You can get it if you have slow writing, too.

    those are 485785% relatable, literally
    but with me its even worse
    eg someone says "let me know when you're done" and straight away
    GIRL LET ME KNOW
    but imagine when youve listened to 543534 kpop songs and basically every word said is kpop related xD

    Now you gonna have everyone applying for extra time because of one comment. You won't be getting extra time unless you've got extenuating circumstances like actual dyslexia that affects how quickly you can work through an exam paper. You had months to work on your time management and if you still haven't sorted it then well tough really, keep doing past papers and maybe it'll help for the last few exams

    that's a bit harsh. some people have never been fast writers no matter how much they try. why should they be put at a disadvantage?
