Really fuming - exam arrangements

I was told that access arrangements were in place for DS's GCSE exams. He got back today and told me that there had been nothing as agreed, he just had to sit the exam with the others. He only finished section one of three. I've had a gut full of school but this is just the icing on the bloody cake. What can we do now the exam is over? And what to do about next week's exam? I'm lucky I have the day off and much to his horror I'm considering going there and making sure they have their act together, it's just a pity I couldn't today. I really thought that having been told the arrangements were in place, after I went specially to ask, that was it. Does anyone know where we stand now?

What arrangements were you expecting? It isn't clear from your post what the school were meant to supply that they didn't ....

What arrangements had been previously agreed?
Is there a reason DS didn't speak up?

Does sound very bad if there was a previous arrangement.

DS has ASD. He was supposed to get a separate room, extra time and a prompter. He is not one for challenging teachers at all.

I see a lot of people on here talking about emailing teachers. Can you email his form tutor and see what's going on?

That really is a first class fuck up on the schools part hmm
