Are you currently in education (or out of education for less than 2 years)?

We require a recent, signed letter on headed paper from your current or most recent school/college or university, which should (as appropriate):

  • Explicitly state the amount of extra time you are entitled to in public exams (e.g. 25%).

  • Explicitly state the amount of time for any rest breaks.

  • Explicitly state you need separate invigilation.

  • Explicitly state any other accommodations you are entitled to in public examinations.

  • Confirm on what basis this entitlement has been agreed, for example a diagnosis from a qualified medical practitioner or an assessment by an educational psychologist / specialist teacher.

In place of a letter, a copy of an approved ‘JCQ Form 8 Application for Access Arrangements’ (all pages) that has been completed and signed by the Head of Centre/SENco and Assessor would be acceptable.

Please refer to the FAQs at the bottom of the Access Arrangements page, for details of the evidence we will accept if any of these circumstances apply to you:

  • You have been out of education for more than 2 years AND cannot provide the evidence detailed above;
  • You have NOT been entitled to access arrangements in your school/college or university exams.

Only one application can be submitted.  If you need to make changes to your application please contact the UCAT Office directly.
