Accessible Digital Question Papers for Disabled Candidates and/or those with Additional Support Needs

Digital Question papers have been designed for disabled candidates and/or those with additional support needs who have been identified as having reading and/or writing difficulties. They are supplied in the ‘pdf’ format on CD. Candidates can read the question paper 'on screen', using speech technology, where appropriate. Also, where the format of the question paper is a question/answer booklet, such candidates can also write/speak their responses 'on screen'.

Digital question papers from previous years can be downloaded by following the appropriate link.

In addition, digital versions of the blank Answer Books have been created and are available by following the appropriate link.
