Support for New and Current Students
Will a student be matched with a scribe in exams who has their subject knowledge, and doesn't that place them at an advantage?
Students are matched with scribes who have some subject knowledge of the course the student is studying. In order to undertake their role effectively, they need a basic knowledge of the course’s specific technical language. For example, a scribe with an Arts background would not be matched with a student who is studying a Science or Maths subject where equations or formulas may need to be written, it is important the scribe has an awareness of those conventions. Scribes work to a strict code of conduct and only write down what a student dictates to them even if the scribe is aware the answer is incorrect.
Alternatively, chat with our current students who will be able to share this information with you and any other course-related queries.
Please contact the Disability Team for more information on 01204 903 478 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org, more information can also be found on our student support page.
