How do I get advice regarding a disability or special arrangements for examinations?

Students may disclose a mental or physical disability at any stage of their time at Oxford, but we urge you to do so as soon as possible so that we can help you to get the support you need. The usual procedure is for students to disclose their disability to the University’s 残疾咨询服务. This service then arranges any necessary assessments, and informs the student's college.

These are termly formative examinations (which don’t count toward your degree, 而是用来监视你的进展). They are usually set for the Friday or Saturday of Week 0. Details of time and place are emailed to you early that week. Collections are normally set on the previous term’s work or may cover specified vacation reading. They are less formal than University examinations (although students are required to wear their gowns), but good performance and evidence of excellent progress may be rewarded with prizes.


Undergraduates are required to be in Oxford from the Thursday before Full Term until the last Saturday of Full Term. Permission to leave before the last Saturday of Full Term must be sought from your tutors and the College. 见足月日期 here.
