How to Apply for GRE Accommodations In 3 Easy Steps

The Graduate Record Examinations (GRE) is an incredibly important test that people take as they are being considered for a Master's program at a college or university. The test is meant to measure how prepared a given student is to enter the graduate world. It is a test of the skills that they have picked up while in undergraduate courses, to be sure, but it is also a way for the college or university to see how fit they might be for their Master's level programs.

When taking this test, it may be necessary for  to be made for certain students. If you feel that you may require such accommodations, you should get with DoNotPay to see how they can arrange for that to happen for you.

What Kind of Accommodations Are Available? 

There are various testing accommodations that can be made for someone who needs them when taking the GRE. A few of those include:

  1. The ability to take the test from your home (with the watchful eye of a proctor)
  2. The chance to have extended or even unlimited time to take the test
  3. The ability to have the test questions read aloud to you

These are just a few examples of the forms of  that are available. Each of these accommodations is provided because it is entirely possible that certain disabilities or disadvantages that some people suffer with make it impossible for them to take the test in the same way as others. What a person in this position can do is receive some accommodations that help get them onto the equal playing ground that others already enjoy.

Reasons for Requesting GRE Accommodations

There are nearly limitless reasons why one might need accommodation when taking a test like the GRE. It is possible that they have one of the following conditions that makes it more challenging for them to take a standardized test: 

  • Learning disabilities
  • Mental disabilities such as bi-polar disorder, anxiety, etc.
  • Difficulty focusing or sitting still for long periods of time like ADHD
  • Physical disabilities that make it challenging or impossible for them to take the test

These challenges make it all the more reason for individuals suffering from these issues to receive the accommodations that they need. They need some special circumstances to make it the same for them to take the test as it is for everyone else.

What Kind of Documentation Is Necessary? 

To get accommodations to take the GRE, it is necessary to provide documentation of certain conditions in certain circumstances. Fortunately, the number of options that one has to choose from as far as which documents to provide is vast. There are several ways that they can prove that they need the additional accommodations when taking the test without having to go too far down the rabbit hole to prove it.

Here are some options:

  • Records of previous testing accommodations
  • Medical records
  • Personal letters and testimony from those who know this person
  • School transcripts and records that prove a disability

There are a lot of ways that a person can go about proving that they need special accommodations when it comes to taking the GRE. Those who design the test, the Education Testing Services (ETS), can make this happen for them by looking over those documents and making sure they are accurate and true. If that is the case, then they can set up the parameters for this individual to take their test.
