Trinity - special educational needs form
When you've completed the form, please print it out, sign it and send it with any required evidence to the address specified in the form.
Applying for provision for special educational needs
It is particularly important for candidates with special educational needs that their entries and full details of the special educational need are received on or before the closing date for the examination. The application for reasonable adjustments must be accompanied by firm evidence, supplied in English (by way of medical records or otherwise). It is therefore very important to give as full an explanation as possible of the nature of the condition, and the requirements for special tests, or specific requests such as a facilitator or helper being present during the examination process.
Trinity reserves the right to turn down requests for provision if any information or supporting evidence is missing or incomplete. Please contact Trinity’s London office for further information using the contact us form.
Provision for special educational needs
Trinity aims to follow the guidelines stipulated by the UK’s regulatory authorities and those of the Joint Council for Qualifications.
Trinity acknowledges that reasonable adjustments should be implemented according to an individual’s special educational needs, taking into account that individual’s usual method of working and the standards of competence that need to be assessed in the examination.
Examiners can only make allowance for a special educational need in respect of the conduct of the examination itself, if deemed appropriate. For this reason it may not be possible or appropriate to make any reasonable adjustments where a candidate’s particular difficulty would directly affect his or her performance in the attributes that are the focus of the examination’s assessment criteria.
Once any reasonable adjustments to the examination have been made (where appropriate), candidates with special educational needs will be assessed to the same standards as every other candidate.
