How Do You Know if You Need Accommodated Testing?
You need to apply for accommodations if you have a condition or disability that warrants a modification to the standard testing conditions. Examples of accommodations include: presentation of MCAT testing materials in large print, extra testing time, a separate testing room, or an authorization to bring in an inhaler, water, or hard candy into the testing room.
Examples of functional impairments that may warrant an accommodation:
- Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
- Anxiety disorders
- Major depression
- Learning disabilities
- Physical impairments
- Visual impairments
- Crohn's Disease
- Mobility impairments
Note: These examples are not inclusive and do not necessarily represent all of the types of accommodations and functional impairments that may warrant an accommodation.
