[IPk] Grant for lap-top

1.  Your school should be able to supply you with a lap top because of your
`Special Need` - arthritis.

2.  If you are unable to write adequately during the exam you can dictate
your answers.  This will have to be organised quite quickly though.

3.  When you take your GCSE`s you should have the option of sitting them in
a separate room where you can monitor your blood glucose and take any
necessary action.

4.  If your blood glucose affects your exam performance get a letter of
support from your diabetes doctor for the school to submit to the Exam

5.  Schools are not always the best place to learn, especially for diabetic
students.  If you do not sit an exam due to illness the exam board may be
able to award you a modulated grade.  You will need to speak to your
teachers is this happens.

Good luck
