The RPL/Entrance Exam process is not about pass or fail, but about whether or not you will cope with the demands of the course you are applying for. As you will be moving into higher education, it is naturally expected that the demands of the course and what the educational institution will expect from you will be much more than that of school.
Further education and training aim to prepare you for the demands of the future workplace. It is also a reality that the workplace does not discriminate between those with or without dyslexia. It is about, can you do the job or not. The same applies to Higher Education. Can you cope with the same demands as everybody else?
The assessment, therefore, aims to determine at its core whether or not you will cope with the problem-solving demands of the course. Many applicants who claim to be living with dyslexia cope very well, and sometimes outperform other non-dyslexic applicants.
Even if the assessment demonstrates that you should cope (or not), the question should rather be, what measures or mechanisms you will institute to help you cope with the demands of the course. We assess for basic study readiness and provide you with report feedback regarding what will hold you back from an emotional-operational perspective. We urge you to build habits and skills to help you with the day-to-day grind of studies as a person living with dyslexia, as realistically, higher education providers are not going to adjust their courses and demands for you, as most are not geared towards such support.
