repetitive strain injury and 3 essay based a levels help watch

    • Thread Starter

    I have repetitive strain injury in my dominant hand and I take history, sociology and geography which are all essay based. I have physio but it isn't helping so far and every day I take ibuprofen but I was wondering if there's anything else I can do to help because I struggle to write for long amounts of time and my exams are coming up very soon

    You might be able to apply for either a laptop or extra time, but I don't know if there is enough time to get it from the exam board before the AS exams this year. Try going to your exams office about it anyway and take a doctor's note with you, they may be able to find a solution, even if it's just for next year and you may be able to get some consideration from the exam board this year.
