GMAT Disability Accommodations - Impacted by Having Prior Scores?  [#permalink]

I am scheduled to take the GMAT in a few weeks but am thinking about applying for extended time. Does anyone have insight into the process behind granting disability accommodations? I don't want to sit for the exam if having a prior score would negatively impact my ability to receive accommodations on future registrations. (I don't think I will do well this time around.)

Hi!
These pages on the GMAC website explains everything you need:
Register as a Test Taker with Disabilities
Accommodations for Test Takers with Disabilities FAQ

GMAC represents five categories of disabilities

1. Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
2. Learning & Cognitive Disorders
3. Physical & Systemic Disorders
4. Psychological Disabilities
5. Sensory Disabilities (Vision & Hearing)

GMAC will ask you to fill out the GMAT Test Accommodation Request Form. Once submitted, GMAC promises that it will return a decision in four weeks, although apparently many decisions only take 7-10 days. So, plan accordingly.

Hope this helps

Hi spoliquin,

The 'process' to apply for 'extended time' on the GMAT is fairly standardized - but you have to follow the standards that GMAC has laid out. This will almost certainly require that you meet with a GMAC-authorized Doctor and go through the proper appointments/tests. That process often takes time (it would not surprise me if it took 1-2 months before you were properly assessed). As Akela has provided the appropriate links, I suggest that you work through those links and see what GMAC has to say.

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich
