Reasonable Accommodations

The scheme of Reasonable Accommodations is designed to assist candidates with special needs at the Certificate examinations. The term special needs applies to candidates who have physical/medical and/or specific learning difficulties.

Reasonable accommodations are designed to remove as far as possible the impact of a disability on a candidate’s performance, so he or she can demonstrate in an examination his or her level of achievement–they are not designed to compensate for a possible lack of achievement arising from a disability.

Applications for reasonable accommodations are considered within a published framework of principles (Expert Advisory Group Report–January 2000) and are submitted by the school which a candidate attends on prescribed application forms. Applications are normally invited one year in advance of the examination concerned.
