At level 3, the learner would be expected to take at least some autonomy for deciding a suitable assessment strategy and coming up with appropriate evidence. We are able to make adjustments to assessments to take account of the needs of individual learners, for instance dyslexia or a physical disability. Please ask your assessor about this.
