Some courses at King’s will have restrictions to Personalised Assessment Arrangements. This article includes more information about the arrangements that are not permitted for certain courses.

 

Disability Coversheets and Exam Script Stickers 

The following Faculties / Programmes recently agreed to accept cover sheets and exam script stickers. This change will come into effect from September 2022. Neurodiverse students eligible for cover sheets should note that clear and accurate written expression is a professional requirements for these disciplines:

Nursing and Midwifery, Dentistry, Pharmacology, Doctorate in Clinical Psychology (DClinPsy), Nutrition & Dietetics, Physiotherapy, Medicine.

 

Computers 

If you are studying Dentistry, a computer can be approved for all written examinations except for any clinical-based assessments, which have writing elements, where a use of a computer is not practicable. 

 

Reasonable adjustments for professional clinical exams

Whilst King's has a duty under the Equality Act to make reasonable adjustments for students, we must balance these against the need to protect the academic integrity of our assessments, and the professional requirements of registrable programmes. 

 

Important to know: 

King's has a responsibility to sign off students as being fit for capable of registration and practice. As such, it is not always appropriate to grant additional arrangements for assessment practices, where inclusive processes have already been incorporated.

If you have further queries on this, please contact your faculty/department or visit our Fitness for Registration and practice webpages.
