This article contains guidance for Exams Officers at authorised Admissions Testing centres in relation to requesting Access Arrangements for candidates with special requirements. The guidance below solely relates to the following admissions tests:
- BMAT (November session)
- STEP Mathematics
- Test of Mathematics for University Admission
- University of Cambridge pre-interview assessments
- University of Oxford admissions tests and MAT for Imperial College London.
Access Arrangements are available to candidates who have a disability or special requirement, and are entitled to support for other exams. Standard arrangements include extra working time, supervised rest breaks, or enlarged question papers. Other arrangements may be available; these will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
Requesting access arrangements
Candidates with special requirements should notify you of this as soon as possible. Exams Officers are responsible for obtaining full details of a candidate's requirement and collecting supporting medical evidence (medical evidence is required to support Access Arrangement requests but may not need to be provided to Cambridge Assessment Admissions Testing. Please see the Notes about Access Arrangements for guidance as to what constitutes appropriate evidence).
Candidates are registered for these admissions tests via Entries Extranet, a secure website that allows Exams Officers at authorised centres to register, view, modify and withdraw candidate entries.
|**NEW FOR 2017**
Once a candidate has been registered in Entries Extranet you can submit a request for access arrangement(s) via the Access Arrangements form available on the Support Site. Our Entries team process these requests and will contact you via email to authorise the request or to ask for further information.
Further guidance regarding Access Arrangements can be found on our website.
