My stuttering has become fairly noticeable and I would like to know if stuttering would lower my mark for Spanish and French speeking exams? And if so, should i talk to my techer about it before the exam and see if anything can be done?

Fluency is something you will be marked upon in speaking exams, so you will if you stutter because of nerves or just not knowing what you're saying. But if you just stutter in general and you have a speaking disorder, then you shouldn't be because that would be discrimination.

Hi,

If you have a stutter all the time then, you should speak to your taacher. Special consideration can be applied so that you are not disadvantage at all. Good luck with your exams
