For candidates who cannot write the FRM exam under standard conditions, either due to physical or a mental disability GARP provides special accommodations. An accommodation is any modification in the standard administration of the FRM exam.
There are various types of accommodations provided by GARP for the FRM exam:
Semi-private room/distraction-reduced environment
Additional time for the exam
Large print examination
Consumption of food and or drink
Assistance for visually impaired
Unlike Disability accommodation provided by CFA Institute, GARP doesn’t provide alternate dates for the exam but besides the ones already mentioned here, if you require an accommodation which is not listed here, you need to mention it in the application under “others” section.
In order to avail any or some of the special accommodations you need to apply for it separately after registering for the FRM Exam. The deadline to apply for the accommodation would be the last day of standard registration. That is 28th February for May exam and August 31st for November exam.
The candidate needs to present information of his disability and an evaluation certifying that the candidate is indeed in need of an accommodation. The requirements of the evaluation are as follows:
Be conducted by a qualified professional who is familiar with the impact of the candidate’s disability on his or her ability to perform on the FRM/ERP Exam or other similar timed standardized tests;
