    i want to know why i am asked if i want extra time for my exam when i dont even need it

    Perhaps you are entitled to it for any number of reasons, even if you don't think you need it

    I believe there a different reasons that some people are entitled for extra time during exams. This reasons are set by the exam board. However, I do not believe that you need to take that extra time even if you are entitled. The best people to speak to would be your exam department in your school.
Have you ever experienced racism/sexism at uni?
