If you have historically struggled during important tests throughout your educational career — whether it’s not finishing in the allotted time, not being able to focus, or dealing with feelings of anxiety before, during, and after tests — you should think about being considered for testing accommodations.
In order to avoid being penalized for slow performance, you need to prove a set of requirements so you can receive testing accommodations. For example, if you have a learning disability, ADHD, or other cognitive disorders, you could be allowed extra time during these important examinations. Here are some of the most important tests that could be difficult to take without proper accommodations for individuals with certain cognitive issues:
The American College Test is a standardized test used for college admissions in the United States. If you believe you need longer time, a secluded environment, enlarged Scantron answer sheets, or a designated reader or scribe to assist you during the ACT, you should consider requesting ACT accommodations in NYC.
The Graduate Management Admission Test is a computer adaptive test designed to assess certain analytical, quantitative, writing, verbal, and reading skills for use in admission to a graduate management program. Without proper GMAT accommodations, individuals with cognitive or physical disabilities will be at a severe disadvantage during this important assessment.
The Law School Admission Test is a standardized test administered four times a year at various testing centers across the globe. This test typically lasts a half-day and can be extremely thorough, involving comprehension, analytical and logical reasoning, writing, and general law knowledge. This test can be the most important test in a person’s life, so it’s imperative that any necessary accommodations are given.
The Medical College Admission Test is a computer-based standardized exams for prospective medical students in the U.S., Canada, Australia, and the Caribbean Islands. Like the LSAT, the MCAT can be the most important test in someone’s life. Make sure you’re fully prepared and have all the desired MCAT accommodations.
