Academic and Examination Arrangements
Students are required to inform and declare any medical conditions/disabilities to the Registrar’s Office upon matriculation, prior to commencement of the first semester. This allows SIT to work with students to prepare necessary arrangements for a positive and fulfilling learning experience.
Special arrangements can also be made for students whose performance during an examination might be affected due to unforeseen circumstances or special medical conditions. For example, a student may sustain a hand injury in an accident, affecting the student’s ability to complete a hand-written examination. Students are required to inform the Registrar’s Office as soon as possible, with relevant medical records from a registered physician or hospital. The Registrar’s Office will assess on a case-by-case basis and determine appropriate arrangements.
Listed below are a few examples of provisions by the Registrar’s Office for students who have declared medical conditions:
- Printed copy of the examination announcements to be issued to hearing-impaired students.
- Physically-impaired students are allowed to enter the examination hall before the rest of the students. They will be seated at the front of the examination hall.
- Students with medical conditions such as dyslexia may be granted extra writing time during their examinations.
- Laptop and printer will be provided for students with writing difficulties.
