Examination Supports

 

The Disability Support Service liaises with the Examinations Office to provide exam support to students with disabilities for their assessments and end-of-semester examinations. CIT has a Disability Administrator in the Exams Office who arranges these supports for Bishopstown campus students in partnership with the DSS.

Supports include:

  • Provision of a laptop / scribe
  • Provision of a reading software /reader
  • Extra time (10 minutes per hour)
  • Access to laptops /assistive technology
  • Separate/shared/smaller exam centres

Registration deadlines

Please note in order for the DSS to confirm with the Exams Office what exam supports a student is entitled to, students must register fully with the Disability Support Service (includes going to a meeting) by these dates:

  • Semester 1 exams: Friday 28th October 2016
  • Semester 2 exams: Friday 10th March 2017
  • (Repeat) August exams: Friday 7th July 2017

All DSS students will have to email the Exams Office (examsmgt@cit.ie) directly for each exam session to confirm what supports they wish to use for their end-of-semester exams by a certain date. For more details please see the CIT Exams page.
