VCA and Dyslexia
Candidates with dyslexia have various options for taking the VCA exam.
Basic VCA (B-VCA)
For Basic VCA exams, candidates with dyslexia can opt for the reading-out variant, which adds additional functionality to the exam, as the questions and possible answers are now read out to the candidate via the headphones provided. The reading-out exam candidate is also given 75 minutes to answer the questions instead of the usual 60 minutes.
(dyslexia certification is not needed for the Basic VCA exam).
VOL-VCA and VIL-VCU
Candidates with dyslexia that have to pass a VOL-VCA or VIL-VCU exam now have the option of applying for an extended exam. The extended exam has a maximum duration of 120 minutes instead of the usual 75 minutes. A reading-out option is not available for a VOL-VCA or VIL-VCU exam.
The extended exam duration means our examiner has to stay at the exam location for longer, which is why we charge a surcharge of € 50.00 for each extended exam.
To be considered for the extended exam, you must comply with the following conditions:
- The candidate must provide Het Certificaat with a certification of dyslexia that must comply with the guidelines issued by the Dutch dyslexia foundation Stichting Dyslexie Nederland, which certification must be provided at least 8 days before the exam is taken.
- We will assess the dyslexia certification; if we approve it then the candidate will be registered for the exam.
For the time being, the extended exam can only be reserved via an in-company exam on our online portal.
