Our approach to reasonable adjustments

We try to meet the needs of diverse groups and take steps to make it easier for them to engage with us.

We have a reasonable adjustments policy which explains how we make adjustments for disabled people. We also provide information in other languages and in easy read.

Examples of reasonable adjustments

PLAB examinations

We're not able to make changes to the content of the examinations, but we have made changes to practical arrangements at the request of candidates. We make these on a case-by-case basis. For example, for a candidate in a wheelchair and with impaired vision we:

  • allowed the candidate to visit before the test so they could see what adjustments they'd need
  • all written material was placed at appropriate heights and in large font size
  • the examination time began when the candidate’s wheelchair was in position
  • we provided an assistant to help move the candidate between stations.

You can read more about reasonable adjustments specific to PLAB tests in the PLAB 1 guide and the PLAB 2 guide.
