I'm currently on the waiting list for ADHD and ASD but I'm doing my A-levels in a few months time. I've already got special arrangements for anxiety and using a laptop. Would I qualify for extra time? My head of year is currently looking into it for me but as I struggle a lot with staying on task and zoning out, I think I would be able to?
In all honesty I barely made it through my GCSEs due to what I believe is going to be ADHD/ASD, although I don't want to self diagnose it. I struggle a lot to revise and think extra time would benefit me a lot.

There's no way for me to know for sure, but I would suspect yes if you've already met the criteria for laptop/anxiety. My uni seemed to give out extra time like candy :rolleyes:

I have ASD but never got extra time at school, when I went to uni they just automatically gave it to me though and it was wonderful actually being able to finish a paper even when I spent half an hour distracted, so you probably would be able to get it too with enough evidence.
