Hi,

I have had a mild arrhythmia for a long time, however it's been getting bad since exams have stated. I have periods where my heart doesn't beat for 2-3 seconds and a resting pulse of 56. When it happens I go a bit light headed, and I think it has had a negative impact on my exams.

Is there anything I can do?

See a doctor? Though I don't really see how an essentially normal heart rate would make you feel light-headed

You need a doctors note confirming the diagnosis and what your complaint is plus how it affected your exam performance.
Then talk to your exam officer and tell them you want to put in a claim for special consideration, plus show them the letter from the doctor.

Sorry, what I meant was I have periods where I have unusual arrhythmias, and I've been diagnosed. After these periods, I feel a bit light headed and dizzy. They occur much more frequently when I'm stressed.

Initially it presented as mild, but exams have made it much worse. Back when I was diagnosed, the doctor wasn't too concerned, but now I think it is a considerable issue.
