And those who need a reader and then they struggle to retain that information; those who need someone to write their answers but their language skills are so limited they do not have the vocabulary to express what they would like to. Well done to all of those who gave it a go.

It's not all about top grades. Spare a thought for those who did well to sit through a 2 hour exam when they have ADHD; those whose ASD means that the ticking of the clock or scratching of pens on paper causes high levels of anxiety, and heightened sensory needs. https://t.co/EO14oh6GNw
