Department of Education and Skills
227. To ask the Minister for Education and Skills when an application can be submitted by or on behalf of a pupil for the use of assistive technology in the junior certificate examinations of June 2017; the process and the timeline involved; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [36250/16]
The State Examinations Commission has statutory responsibility for operational matters relating to the certificate examinations. The Commission in this regard operates a scheme of Reasonable Accommodations in the Certificate Examinations.
In view of this I have forwarded your query to the State Examinations Commission for direct reply to you.
