Candidates with Disabilities
Candidates wishing to be considered for special accommodations should submit all necessary documentation as early as possible together with the application form when registering. Any documentation submitted beyond registration deadlines will not be taken into consideration and therefore, the candidate will not be examined under special conditions. The documentation submitted must be valid and must have been issued by a committee of specialists or a hospital. Simple doctors’ notes will not be accepted by the Disabilities Committee.
Visual Impairement

For candidates with visual impairments, the following accommodations are possible:

  • An examination booklet with enlarged font can be provided. A sample booklet can be sent to the prospective candidate in advance to ensure that the font size is large enough to be read without difficulty.
  • If a candidate is blind and is able to read Braille, the English Language Center at Michigan State University can provide a copy of the entire test booklet in Braille in addition to other accommodations depending on the further needs of such candidates.

Note: All candidates requesting Special Accommodation in the Attiki Region will be taking their exam in Agia Paraskevi

Auditory Impairment

For candidates with auditory impairments, the following accommodations are possible:

  • For candidates with mild to moderate hearing loss, the candidate may be seated very close to the speakers broadcasting the listening portion of the test.
  • For candidates with complete hearing loss, the candidate may be exempted from the listening portion of the test. In such cases, if a candidate passes the remaining sections of the exam, the certificate issued will state that the candidate’s listening ability was not assessed.
