Hello. I'm from France and here, disabled and visually impaired people are also treated differently for their exams.I've got a disabled friend who can't write and she sees with difficulty. Someone writes for her and she is given more time(for a one-hour exam, she's given a two-hour extra).She's rather pleased with that as she thinks she probably couldn't pass her exams without this positive descrimination.

So far as you are being taken to school, you should learn how to read and to write. Even if you can't, you should do your possible best to do so, Let me tell you a story. There was this lady who knows how to speak English fluently. She is very attractive & beautiful & also a married person. One day a friend of hers introduced her to one of the TV stations in the city of Accra, Ghana. To read news but because she can't read and write, she wasn't offered the job. So I think Heather should not be expected to be read to and written for during exams. Because students are being tested to see how well they are coming up.

you can be pround of yourself not wanting more time for your exams but don't you think that others might need it because it would be difficult or impossible for them to pass their exam without it, just like people who doesn't see anything...
