Compassionate Appeal

If, during an examination, you believe you have been prevented from demonstrating your ability due to serious medical circumstances or unanticipated exceptional circumstances beyond your control, you must submit a compassionate appeal to void your result. Upon consideration, the Executive Committee may grant a refund of fees.

If the circumstance beyond your control occurs before the administration of the examination, you must withdraw. Please refer to the NDEB By-laws and Policies for Examinations for more information.

Many examinees experience anxiety prior and during an examination. This 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.

To request a compassionate appeal, submit the Compassionate Appeal Request Form below within seven days of the examination date. Late submissions will not be considered. For further details, download and read the Compassionate Appeal Policy.
