Special needs requests

Trinity College London is committed to creating an inclusive environment where candidates with special needs are able to demonstrate their skills and feel welcomed. We aim to make our examinations accessible to all. We treat each learner individually when considering how we can achieve this aim, recognising that requirements vary. Candidates can be assured that we do not compromise on the standard of marking or allow the quality of examinations to be affected in any way.
The procedures below must be followed when requesting consideration of special educational needs/disabilities.
Submitting requests
Requests for special educational needs provisions must be submitted using either:
The “Request for Special Provision form”: International requests only. Please contact your area representative for a copy of this form.
Via Trinity Online: UK requests only – please contact Trinity’s London office for instructions on how to do this.
Full details of the candidate’s examination and special educational needs/disabilities must be received on or before the closing date for the examination (28 days prior to the examination date). When processing requests, Trinity must give priority to requests which were received before the deadline over any late requests. Therefore, Trinity cannot guarantee that a late request will be processed in time.
For candidates requesting examiner briefing only, supporting documentation is not necessary. For all other requests for special needs provision, appropriate supporting documentation must be sent in with the request. 
Trinity reserves the right to turn down requests for provision if sufficient information is not provided.  
If you have any specific questions regarding special needs procedures for Trinity’s English Language examinations, please email:
