What type of special adjustments can I request?

Based on your disability or medical condition and the difficulties it may pose in a testing situation, you will be asked to inform EPSO about the type of adjustments that would be useful for you.

On a case-by-case basis - taking into consideration your supporting documentation and EPSO’s expertise built in the field of reasonable accommodations of selection tests to candidates with specific needs - you will be offered accommodations per type of test you will need to sit. Therefore, the final accommodations you will receive may differ from what you requested.

Some examples of possible adjustments:

  • Ensuring accessibility
  • Additional time to sit the tests
  • Enlarged texts or magnifying software
  • Print outs in Braille or Braille keyboard
  • Adapted lighting
  • Height-adjustable desks
  • Individual assistance and much more…

Please note that assistive technology is not available at all stages of the selection process. EPSO is currently working at enhancing its procedures and services and will continue to analyse your needs in order to offer you the necessary accommodations and allow you to take the tests in the best possible conditions.

IMPORTANT: the provisions of reasonable accommodations will take into account the delivery of the particular tests either in test centers or remotely.
