Taking the GMAT with a Disability

As the world’s fastest-growing GMAT prep company, Veritas Prep often receives questions from test takers with disabilities. The Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC), the organization that runs the GMAT, has a page on its web site that contains most of what you need to know if you have a disability and want to take the GMAT.

GMAC is committed to making sure that anyone can take the GMAT, regardless of what disability they may have. GMAC’s site provides a general overview of how to register for the exam and request specific accommodations if you have a disability. Also, be sure to read this document: Supplement for Test Takers with Disabilities. GMAC will accommodate you if any of these disabilities apply to you:

  • Learning Disabilities
  • Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
  • Physical or Systemic Disabilities
  • Psychiatric Disabilities
  • Deafness or Hard-of-Hearing Disabilities
  • Blindness or Low-Vision Disabilities

If you fall into one of the above camps, GMAC and Pearson VUE (the company that runs the test centers where you will take the GMAT) can make a variety of accommodations. including giving you more time on the exam, extended breaks during the exam, a reader who can read test questions aloud to you, or enlarged fonts on the computer screen. All of these accommodations are made to help GMAC measure your true ability with the GMAT, regardless of what disabilities you have.
