I get extra time because a teacher recommended me at gcse and I was slow at comprehension. Now I finish a level so I am wondering if i will get it and how do I proof it? What kind of proof can I provide if I do get it plus I don't have dyslexia or smt .

Yep when your apply on UCAS you should have ticked the dyslexia/disabilities box.

Your uni student support serivice should reach out (probs after results day) to discuss next steps

If you have a medical reason then yes you will get extra time. Otherwise probably not.

Hi Laotsu

Please do not worry, universities have dedicated teams to ensure your learning needs and wellbeing is being looked after. You will probably receive information about the support available to you when you start university, but you can also have a look online in the meantime to see what your university offer. There will also be contact information for the support team, and you could contact them directly to ask what support would be available to you.

I hope this helps, best of luck

Hi! Laotsu

I was in the same position as you when I went to uni. From what I can remember I had to gain a letter from my A level tutor and doctors, which provided reasons why I needed extra time. Then I think I handed this to the university team that deals with additional support while at university.

I hope this helps!
Best wishes

You might have to have additional assessments but extra time certainly exists at university and so do other adjustments like rest breaks. You should get in touch with disability services early on (eg. soon after you've been accepted) to see what they can do for you and what adjustments are available.

What paperwork have you got? An individual learning plan? Assessment for 'slow comprehension'? Are you applying for DSA?

HI Laotsu you should apply for a learning contract at University. This site tells you what a learning contract is and how you can be provided with one, with assessment and help by the disability team https://www.shu.ac.uk/disabled-stude...ning-contracts

I hope this helps you.

Hi there,

I hope you're well

Different universities may have different policies or criteria, so it may be best to speak to the student welfare and guidance department at your chosen University to see if you qualify / what you need to qualify. I recommend doing this sooner rather than later, just so you're fully informed sooner!

I hope this is helpful!
