As a general rule where students have a diagnosed difficulty which impacts on their cognitive processing they will be awarded extra time. Where students have a long term health or mental health condition they will be offered rest periods, where the clock is stopped and a student can pause, manage their condition and restart without negative impact on the time allocated to the assessment. In both cases the additional allowance will be up to 25%.
In some cases students may have a dual diagnosis and might therefore be entitled to both an award of extra time and stop the clock rest periods
