Teaching and learning
Access arrangements are pre-exam arrangements made on behalf of a candidate with particular needs. For example, the use of a scribe, modified papers or extra time. There are three different groups of access arrangements, each with their own application form and set of deadlines.
Group 1: Non-delegated access arrangements
You need to apply for our permission, with evidence, to user uses
Group 2: Centre-delegated access arrangements
Notify us if you use these and keep evidence on file in case of inspection
Group 3: Modified papers
We only accept modified paper applications if a final entry has been submitted
If you plan to use any access arrangements, read the access arrangements section of the Cambridge Handbook so you understand each type of access arrangement and the application/notification process for each one. Before the exams, download our good practice guide to running exams using access arrangements.
