Hi all at the helpline team, I wasn't sure where to direct this problem.
I am at college and they are aware that I have RA. I showed my tutor a letter from my consultant confirming my diagnosis and the symptoms I experience. I requested extra time in my exams and to use my laptop. I have a sociology exam in January and my tutor said I could have extra time but that I wasn't allowed to use my laptop. I said I might as well not do the exam because I literally cannot write an essay. He eventually agreed but won't let me have extra time too. I need to rest when I type lots and I suffer from chronic fatigue which adversely affects my concentration levels. Also, I had a Maths exam in September and my teacher allowed me to have extra time. I had another Maths exam today and the same teacher said she knew nothing of my RA and didn't let me have the extra time!!
I feel my needs are not being taken into account. I have tried speaking to my tutor again but no joy. Am I being unreasonable to expect more support under exam conditions?
