For all exams that are presented in English an extra 30 minutes will automatically be awarded to any candidate who has specified in the Blue Prism Learning Management System (LMS) that they originate from a non-English speaking country. A full list of countries where English is an official language can be found in Appendix B.

Pearson VUE will supply Blue Prism with weekly reports of exams accommodations provided in each country where exams have been taken. Any candidate found to be deliberately abusing automatic accommodations will be have their accreditation revoked without refund and will not be permitted to sit further exams.

Individual Accommodations

Exam length can be adjusted on request to accommodate specific candidate physical conditions that may require extra examination time e.g. dyslexia.

Test accommodations are personalised and considered on a case-by-case basis. Simply demonstrating that an individual meets diagnostic criteria for a particular disorder does not mean that the person is automatically entitled to test accommodations.

It is essential that the documentation of the disability provide a clear explanation of the current functional limitation(s) and a rationale for the test accommodation. To request individual accommodation please email training@blueprism.com providing your Portal ID, exam you wish to take and reasons for accommodation. Please do not register for an exam until your accommodation has been confirmed by Blue Prism.
