Support for candidates with specific needs taking ABRSM exams

Our policy

ABRSM is committed to providing fair access to our exams for candidates with specific needs. In this section, you can find out about the access arrangements and reasonable adjustments we can provide in our Fair Access Guidelines.

We have made some important updates to the process for requesting Access Arrangements and Reasonable Adjustments. Please take the time to review our updated Access Policy on this page, or download the policy as a PDF.

The policy is available in alternative formats upon request.

Important Updates from 2020

  • From January 2020, all applications for Access Arrangements and Reasonable Adjustments must be selected at the time of entry and before the entry closing date.
  • Applications for access arrangements and reasonable adjustments must be made each time the candidate is entered for an exam.
  • We will be unable to accept any late requests for Access Arrangements and Reasonable Adjustments so please check your candidate’s specific needs before you make their entry.
  • If changes are made to an entry after the entry closing date, we will not be able to transfer any Access Arrangement or Reasonable Adjustment to the updated entry.

Selecting access arrangements and reasonable adjustments

From January 2020, you will be able to choose from a wider range of access arrangements and reasonable adjustments when making exam entries. We are not making any changes to the provisions we offer candidates with specific needs.
