If you think something might have affected your performance during your test, such as temporary illness/injury or problems with the administration of the test, or if you cannot attend the test due to illness, including testing positive for Covid, you can apply for special consideration.
If you are a candidate who has taken a test at an internal test centre, for example at your school, contact them right away, as special consideration requests should be made in the first instance by the centre. If the special consideration is due to a fault at your school or college, for example, if access arrangements were not provided, you can submit the form requesting special consideration. The form is only available in this article from the relevant test date until the deadline for submission.
Cambridge Assessment Admissions Testing will consider the circumstances and, where appropriate, we will advise the universities of the special consideration. The decision to take the special consideration into account or not is at the discretion of the universities.
No adjustment will be made to the results.
Please note, we are only able to pass on special consideration notifications to the universities that officially accept results from the exams.
