Reducing the cost of GCSE resits

Couple the rising numbers of students not meeting the required grade in GCSE English and maths, with the number of students who require the aid of a human reader and the costs associated with GCSE resits start to soar. 

For students with dyslexia or other learning difficulties who may ordinarily require a human reader in exams, resitting GCSE exams countless times and relying on the assistance of human support, can be a very stressful and disheartening experience, especially at the beginning of college life.

Implementing Read&Write computer reading software allows your students who would usually require the help of a human reader, to take back control and sit their exams independently and with increased confidence. Gone is the embarrassment of having to ask for a question to be read aloud multiple times, instead the student can play back the text on screen as many times as they need to help them understand.

Supporting the needs of students campus-wide

With as much as 10% of the UK population identified as dyslexic (source BDA), there's a clear need to give students in further education extra support with tasks like writing assignments, research, and independent study.
Relied on daily by millions of students around the world, our support software makes the web and documents more accessible. It's also great for ELL / ESL students whose first language isn't English.

Implementing Read&Write across your college campus allows even the most proficient students to add extra polish to assignments and projects.

Every student learns differently. That's why our easy-to-use assistive technologies are accessible across a wide range of platforms and devices - including PCs, Macs, Chromebooks and tablets - to suit students' personal study needs and lifestyles.
