Applying for both Alternative Exams and Special Consideration

Can I apply for both Alternative Exams and Special Consideration?

Generally it is not possible to apply for Special Consideration for examinations for which you have already been granted Alternative Exams Arrangements on the grounds of a medical condition and/or a disability. However, an acute exacerbation of the problem may be considered grounds for a Special Consideration application. For example, if a student who has Alternative Exam Arrangements in place but is too unwell to undertake the exam, may need to apply to defer the exam using the Special Consideration Process.
