ACCA - The global body for professional accountants

Requests for additional examination arrangements for reasons of disability will be considered in accordance with the UK Equality Act 2010. ACCA is committed to ensuring that every student has the opportunity to benefit from suitable exam conditions appropriate to their specific requirements, while maintaining the integrity of the examination process.

Our dedicated team of exam administrators works continuously with both students and exam centres to ensure that the appropriate exam conditions are in place to help all candidates demonstrate their competence in the disciplines being assessed in our exams.

Each and every request is dealt with by way of an application. Your application will be considered on an individual basis by our experienced team. Applications should reach ACCA by 8 April for June exams and 8 October for December exams, except in the case of accidental injury or acute illness, when an application should be submitted as soon as possible after the event. Please note that if your application is received after these dates, we may not be able to process your application on time for you to sit your exams.

You may have submitted information regarding a disability on your Initial Registration form and if so, we will already have a record of your requirements. However, you may still be contacted by our examinations department for further information if necessary.

If your circumstances have changed since the time of your registration, it may still be possible for additional arrangements to be made for you. If you require such additional arrangements then please notify the exams department in writing by the relevant dates detailed above, together with supporting documentary medical evidence and your request will be processed fairly and without unnecessary delay.

Please visit our Contact us page to submit your application, applying the subject heading 'Additional requirements'.
