GCSE Astronomy and SEN

As an academy we have experience in dealing with students with Special Educational Needs. Even though its not possible to cater for every issue presented we can do out best. It might be possible to offer extra support, so if unsure please notify us before enrolling.

For purposes of the examination it is also possible to arrange for extra time and or a scribe to assist (A scribe is someone who writes answers to exam questions on behalf of the candidate).

It should be noted however that some exam centers may charge extra for this, which will of course need to be passed onto the student. At the time of writing this, our Leamington Exam center has been able to provide both invigilator and scribe for £30 each. Please note with the GCSE Astronomy as its now two exam papers this could mean up to £120. Please check if unsure.




Please also make your tutor aware of any SEN as early as possible into the course as we cannot be held responsible for any issues after the fact. Also As an academy we will do our best to ensure that every possible support is made available however ultimately it is down to the exam board, Edexcel, to make the final decision and whether the center can provide the extra support required. OAS Academy cannot accept any responsibility as these would be matters beyond our control

Please also note our terms and conditions before enrolling.
