Will I receive additional time for online assessments?
If you are granted PAA, the format of the online exam you are taking will determine if additional time will be included for your assessment:
For online exams taken over a 24-hour period no additional time will be awarded. The expectation is that such assessments will take approximately the same length of time as a traditional exam, and thus the 24-hour time period allows for any extra time or rest breaks you would have taken in an invigilated exam on campus.
For online exams with a fixed duration (e.g. 2-3 hours), if your PAA includes additional time then this will be added. Additional time may also be included for online exam paper download and collation/upload periods.
If you have a coursework coversheet as part of your PAA provisions then you should attach this to the first page of your document.
Below are some examples of arrangements that we grant for certain Specific Learning Difficulties (SpLDs) and medical conditions at King’s.
Important to know:
- The majority of exams during 2020-21 will be held online and PAA will continue to be granted appropriately.
- If you have an exam on campus and have been granted PAA, then you will sit your exam in a dedicated PAA room that will have social distancing measures in place.
- If you have multiple conditions, then the arrangements listed below will not be combined. Instead, we will arrange for your PAA to reflect your individual situation and discrete combination of needs.

IBS, Ulcerative Colitis, Crohn's Disease (and similar conditions)
