    Hi , your school have to be notified that your not good at reading/understanding english and you get given a test , my friend did anyway and he purposely did bad and hes been given 25% extra time for every exam , which is a huge advantage if you ask me?

    It's pretty much too late. The rules say that you need to have been identified as having issues, have been assessed which shows you to have a need, established it as your normal way of working and that providing you with it makes a difference to your results AND the school needs to have applied by 21 February.

    Even if you don't get extra time for your A2 exams, if you think you might have a learning disability then it might be worth talking to your school about getting an assessment anyway. There's a bunch of reasons this would be a good idea:

    1) If you have a problem, they might be able to offer you advice or support in preparation for your exams
    2) If you are worried about not attaining grades for a place at university, the university may take your diagnosis into account given that you didn't receive extra time
    3) This diagnosis will mean you get extra time in exams and tests in the future, including graduate scheme tests
    4) Having an understanding of why you struggle in certain areas will mean you can take measures to mitigate them and make sure they have minimum effects on your performance in every aspect of life
