UKCAT Access Arrangements

We offer a number of access arrangements if you have special educational needs, disabilities or temporary injuries that entitle you to extra time or accommodations in public examinations.

Please follow the links to find details of the access arrangements we can provide: 


Further assistance

If you are not currently entitled to extra time or accommodations in public examinations but feel that your disability or medical condition may make you eligible, you should email the UKCAT Office  to discuss your situation.  We will need to see medical evidence from a specialist or general practitioner.  This evidence should be recent, detail the circumstances and explain explicitly why alternative examination arrangements are required.  We are unlikely to support requests where there is not a clear medical recommendation that extra time or accommodations should be granted.


If you do not think that your particular needs will be met by the access arrangements on offer you should email the UKCAT Office and include your supporting evidence.  You should make contact at least 10 working days before registration closes.
