The services of a scribe (amanuensis) are available to candidates who have disability and require assistance in operating the computer for the exam for Part-A of the examination. However, the candidate will be required to attempt Part-B without assistance, due to its nature, described below.
• To avail this benefit, the candidate should select this option in the online registration form AND upload a copy of the PwD certificate (Appendix 4 – 7), at the time of online registration for UCEED 2021. The compensatory time of Part-A and Part-B are non-transferable.
• If a PwD candidate wants to avail compensatory time (20 minutes per hour) and/or request the assistance of a scribe, the same request should be mentioned while filling the registration form. PwD certificate is to be uploaded along with such requests, which are to be made in the given format (Appendix 8 - 9).
• The UCI Office will assess the request along with the supporting document and contact the candidate via email with further instructions if necessary.
• If it is found that a candidate has used the services of a scribe and/or compensatory time, but DOES NOT possess the extent of disability that warrants the use of a scribe and/or compensatory time, he/she will be excluded from the process of evaluation, ranking and admission. If the candidate has already been admitted, his/her admission will be cancelled.
