Apply for reasonable adjustments

Adjustments under the Equality Act 2010

The UKFPO will make reasonable adjustments to accommodate disabled candidates provided these are made known in advance. If you require any adjustments (e.g. wheelchair access, extra time, nursing mothers) you must inform the UKFPO of any reasonable adjustments and provide supporting evidence using the separate electronic form if requested.

Adjustments cannot be guaranteed if contact is made after the specified deadline and no adjustments can be made on the day of the test. In some instances, in order to accommodate adjustments, it may be necessary to schedule your exam at a specific time or in a specific location.
