[vet-mm] Colour blind students

Hi all,

I have had a few colour blind students over the years and have made them get special consideration. They are then allowed to ask questions to do with colour - although if I remember correctly the examiners are only allowed to give them a yes or no answer to their questions.
It was required on one past exam for a particular student where the student needed to turn a car from green to purple (or purple to green - can't remember) and he was able to do it fine.
I would encourage them to get special consideration as you would hate for them to miss marks for this reason.

Kind regards
