Extra time in exams for hypermobility syndrome watch

    • Thread Starter

    I have mild hypermobility syndrome but have not informed my school about it as yet. I take my exams in 3 months time if that, is this too late to get extra time? I have a note from my doctor etc to say I have it, but who do I even go to? My wrists in my previous mock get really bad and I constantly have to hold it to try and continue to write, but as fast as I am trying to write I can’t. I just wanted to know if any of you have experienced this before and how you got extra time so close to your exams?
