If you believe you have been prevented from demonstrating your ability because of a serious medical circumstance or unanticipated medical circumstance during the examination, you can submit a compassionate appeal to have the results of the examination voided. Compassionate appeals must be submitted using the Compassionate Appeal Request form within seven days of the examination.
Many examinees experience anxiety prior and during an exam. Exam anxiety is normal. Exam anxiety does not lead to a test accommodation or compassionate appeal. Anxiety must be a diagnosed disorder to warrant accommodation or a compassionate appeal.
Read the NDEB’s compassionate appeal policy prior to submitting your appeal.
