To allow for students with disabilities, the State Examinations Commission (SEC) has devised what are called Reasonable Accommodations. It’s hard enough going for the exams themselves without worrying about what your disorder is going to throw at you during them, so you can apply for these Reasonable Accommodations which will take your disability into account, take some of the pressure off and give you the same opportunity as everyone who doesn’t suffer.

The first step to take for students who suffer from migraine is to get a confirmation letter from your GP/Neurologist stating the fact that you have been diagnosed with migraine. Both the SEC and the school will need this to proceed to Reasonable Accommodations.

The SEC has issued a guide for schools and students to make people aware of the Reasonable Accommodations application for the State Exams. It can be found on the SEC website or by clicking below; – Please be aware that the guides below takes a few moments to load.
