If you require accommodations to write your exam, you must notify the Exams Unit by the registration deadline of December 4 for spring examinations or May 15 for fall exams.
The Royal College will attempt to accommodate your specific requirements for the exam provided that the validity of the exam is maintained. Accommodations will be granted on an individual basis and depend on the nature and extent of the special requirement, documentation provided, and the requirements of the exam.
By the registration deadline, you are required to provide the following documentation to the Royal College:
The Royal College may request additional information, as it considers necessary, on a case-by-case basis.
If granted, accommodations apply to the current year only. You must submit a new request for accommodation each year you register for a Royal College exam, regardless of your pass/fail result on a previous exam.
In the event the need for an exam accommodation arises after the deadline, you must contact firstname.lastname@example.org with the required documentation as soon as possible. It may not be possible to arrange the requested accommodation(s) too close to the exam date.
The Royal College reserves the right to designate the location and date and time of the exam since all accommodations may not be available at any given exam site on any given exam date. For example, a request for a written exam might mean that you would be required to take the written component at a site other than your preferred city.
Before submitting your request for exam accommodation, ensure you have all of the required documentation and have read the information carefully on this page. The deadline to submit a request is December 4 for spring specialty examinations or May 15 for fall subspecialty exams.
