Why are more kids in independent or public schools given longer to complete exams for dyslexia than pupils at state schools?

A study found that 20% of pupils in public schools were awarded more time to complete exams, compared to 12.5% of children in state schools. The difference may be due to the public schools having more staff time to complete the applications for the children. It might be because public schools are better at monitoring their pupils' special needs.
