Candidates with Special Needs

A candidate with special needs who may need extra time to complete the examination must apply in writing to the University Registrar upon registration for a programme of studies. Documentation of the special needs should be submitted along with the application. Upon approval, the student will be granted an additional fifteen minutes (15) for each hour of the stated examination time. Students who are blind or visually impaired and use a Braille writer or a scribe will be provided with a separate examination setting.

If a student has an illness that will affect his / her performance in the examination and the student elects to write the examination regardless of the situation, grade obtained on the written examination will be the official examination result.
