Reasonable adjustments (accommodations)

If you would like to request reasonable adjustments (accommodations), please create an account on the Pearson VUE website, (this will give you a BCAT ID) then read the reasonable adjustment policy and fianlly complete the reasonable adjustment form.

Do NOT book the BCAT online, this will result in you arriving at the test centre to find you are booked for a standard test with no reasonable adjustments.

Notice period: For reasonable adjustments such as a Reader, a Recorder or a Braille test, the Bar Standards Board and Pearson VUE require six weeks' notice  to put these in place for your test. For reasonable adjustments such as extra time or a separate room, the Bar Standards Board and Pearson VUE require two weeks' notice to put these in place for your test. The Bar Standards Board and Pearson VUE will try and accommodate all reasonable adjustment requests, but reserve the right to decline requests that do not provide the notice periods indicated above.

Contact: Once completed, please email the reasonable adjustment form to BCAT@barstandardsboard.org.uk together with supporting documentation.
