AWSEC seeks to assess all candidates in a way that puts them at no disadvantage, or advantage, over other candidates.
A reasonable adjustment is any action that helps to reduce the effect of a disability or difficulty that places the candidate at a substantial disadvantage in the assessment situation. Reasonable adjustments are approved and put in place before the assessment activity takes place; they constitute an arrangement to give the candidate access to the qualification. The use of a reasonable adjustment is not taken into consideration during the assessment of a candidate’s work.
Reasonable adjustments must not give unfair advantage over candidates for whom reasonable adjustments are not being made, nor will it affect the reliability and validity of the assessment outcomes as detailed in the applicable Specification.
Reasonable adjustments may involve:
Applying for a reasonable adjustment
Candidates are encouraged to identify at the time of enrolment any special needs which may require a reasonable adjustment at the time of the examination. A Reasonable Adjustment Application Form (which must attach supporting evidence) will be required to be submitted to the WSET Awards Assessments Manager at least four weeks before the examination date in the case of WSET qualifications at Levels 1-3 and at least eight weeks before the examination date in the case of the WSET Level 4 Diploma. Thus, applications will be required to be submitted to AWSEC at least six weeks before the examination date and at least ten weeks before the examination date respectively.
The specific arrangements for the examination process itself, or for marking, will be agreed in each case between the AWSEC’s Examinations Officer and the WSET Awards Assessments Manager, and will vary according to individual circumstances. AWSEC and WSET Awards reserve the right to seek the advice of independent agencies as appropriate in coming to a decision on specific arrangements. Please note that AWSEC may not offer reasonable adjustments to any candidate until this has been agreed with WSET Awards.
Candidates and their advisors should be aware that it is not appropriate to make requests for reasonable adjustments where the candidate’s particular difficulty directly affects performance in the attributes that are the focus of the assessment.
Special consideration is an action taken after an assessment to allow candidates who have been disadvantaged by temporary illness, injury, indisposition, or adverse circumstances at the time of the assessment to demonstrate attainment.
Special consideration will not give unfair advantage over candidates for whom special consideration is not being applied, nor will it alter the assessment demands of the qualification as detailed in the applicable Specification.
A candidate may be eligible for special consideration if:
Please note that WSET Awards does not offer aegrotat awards and that all assessment requirements of WSET qualifications must be met.
Applying for special consideration
A Special Consideration Application Form must be submitted to the WSET Awards Assessments Manager within 7 working days of the assessment date for which special consideration is being sought. Thus, the application must be submitted to AWSEC within 14 working days of the assessment date for which special consideration is being sought. Eligibility will only be considered if accompanied by supporting independent documentation.
In cases of serious disruption during the examination, the Examinations Officer must submit a detailed report of the circumstances and candidates affected to WSET Awards. This must be returned with the completed examination papers.
AWSEC will keep records of all applications for special consideration.
