Increasing accessibility for autistic students within GCSE English and Mathematics exam papers whilst retaining subject challenge. This guidance was commissioned in response to a concern in relation to fair access to GCSE English and Mathematics examinations in England and Wales for autistic students.

The focus of this project was to develop guidance for Examination Boards on increasing the accessibility for autistic students within GCSE English and Mathematics exam papers whilst retaining subject challenge.

The guidance will help examination boards:

  • Identify key challenges for autistic students in English and Maths
  • Identify parts of current exam subject content that may cause challenge for autistic students
  • Identify where adjustments could be made to exam subject content
