Administering our tests
You are here:
You can find important information about our policies and processes including Access Arrangements, Special Considerations, Results Enquiries, Appeals, Malpractice and Complaints below.
It's important to read the guidance notes before submitting the online form(s). They provide you with useful information about the different policies and processes, including any associated costs.
Access Arrangements are available to candidates who have a disability or special requirement, and are entitled to support for other exams. Standard arrangements include extra working time, supervised rest breaks, or enlarged question papers. Other arrangements will be considered on a case-by-case basis, for example a reader, a laptop or Braille papers.
Candidates should inform the test centre of any special requirements as soon as possible. It is the centre’s responsibility to ask a candidate for full details of their requirement and collect supporting medical evidence; this is required to support Access Arrangement requests, but may not need to be provided to Cambridge Assessment Admissions Testing. Read the PDF below for guidance as to what is appropriate evidence.
Additional information for computer-based tests (BMAT, TMUA, CTMUA, TSA and TSA S1 only)
Please note that we are unable to provide candidates with unlimited ‘on request’ or ‘stop the clock’ breaks during any section of a computer-based test. If a candidate has to have a break then please submit a Special Consideration form with the details of how many breaks the candidate had and for how long.
We can offer candidates a 5 minute break or a 10 minute break between sections, where applicable. When asking for an access arrangement please state which is required.
Notes about Access Arrangements
Requests for Special Consideration are used to indicate to institutions that a candidate suffered temporary illness, injury or indisposition at the time of the test. They may also be used to indicate that there were problems with an aspect of the administration of the test, such as a fire alarm during the test session.
Special Consideration requests should be made in the first instance by the centre, with the candidate’s agreement, by completing an online Special Consideration form (see below). A candidate can make an application directly if the Special Consideration is due to a fault at the school or college, for example, if Access Arrangements have not been provided.

For certain tests, if a candidate thinks there has been an error in the processing or reporting of their results, they can raise a Results Enquiry.
A Results Enquiry should be submitted by the centre, on behalf of the candidate, by completing an online Results Enquiry form (see below). If the test was taken at an open centre or at another location via remote proctoring, the form may be submitted directly by the candidate. A request for a Results Enquiry must be received by us within five working days of the results release date.
Please note, forms are only available when the Results Enquiry window for each test is open.

For certain tests, if a candidate thinks a Results Enquiry or a Malpractice case was incorrectly handled, they can submit an Appeal.
An Appeal should be submitted by the centre, on behalf of the candidate, by completing an online Appeal form (see below). If the test was taken at an open centre, the Appeal form may be submitted directly by the candidate.

We have a responsibility to candidates, test centres and other stakeholders to ensure the integrity of our tests by putting in place robust measures to identify and deal with instances of candidate or test centre malpractice. The Notes about Malpractice PDF below tells you more about the Malpractice procedure.
The personal statement document below can be filled in by candidates, invigilators or other parties allowing them to express their personal view of what happened. Once collected, each personal statement should be sent to the Malpractice team, either via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by attaching it to the online form (see below).
