    my friend who has only been here for 2 years and a bit now. who was given extra time last year and for 2 of his exams so far was randomly denied it for his S2 exam today.
    he was really upset about it because at the begining of the exam they said he was getting extra time but the end of his exam they just collected his exam saying you dont get extra time anymore. can the college actually do this? our maths teacher told him to complain to the exam board. but what would that do?

    They can't just take your paper away when they told you at the start that you have extra time! It's just instinct that you will take advantage if having extra time thus finishing after everyone else so yeah he should complain lol.
