Do students with a learning difficulty have any special rights on the 11 plus exam?

Yes, definitely. Nowadays, schools have policies in place to support children with specific learning difficulties. It is, however, important to inform the school about this to make sure your child can benefit from those policies. Schools generally needs a bit of time to arrange any special requests for the exams. There are several actions a school can take to provide your child with a fair attempt. Think for instance about extra time or large print. So if your child is facing a learning difficulty then definitely aim to benefit from those policies.
