Hi! I’m studying my alevels in year 13. I’ve never had extra time before, but I think it could help me.
I have Crohn’s disease and I suffer from extreme fatigue because of staying up at night due to pain and it also causes my anaemia, which means I can’t concentrate as well.
I don’t know if I’d be allowed it or who I should contact. What do you think?

Well obviously yes if it affects you during your exam.

Just speak to a teacher, probably your year head of a form teacher.

You need to talk to the SENCo but if you don't know her then start with your form tutor or head of year.

It's worth discussing exactly where you think you struggle compared to a 'normal' person - you may need extra time owing to fatigue but you may need rest breaks for extended toilet visits as well.
