It was my first time applying to Lancaster this year and I did awfully on the selection tests . I have dyslexia and therefore, feel these kind of tests are a disadvantage for me as verbal reasoning is a very weak point due to my dyslexia. I didn't think the extra time helped either. However, Lancaster is a university that I am very much interested in for the DCLINPSY. Are there any other dyslexics who can offer support or advice on how to do well in these selection tests? Thank you.
Just to make clear to anyone who thinks that these tests disadvantage people with dyslexia, in the 6 years Lancaster has been using them the percentage of people with dyslexia has been consistently higher at interview (those selected by the tests) than it is prior to the selection tests (all applicants to the programme). This data is published on the Lancaster programme website every year.
