Testing Accomdations for ADHD?

Postby Anonymous User » Fri Feb 07, 2020 4:12 pm

I'm taking the Illinois Bar in July. I have ADHD and use Adderall. Do I need to fill out a testing accommodation to use this medication on the test day? Is the Bar so strict that they would kick you out of the testing center if you used medication without filing for an accommodation? It just seems like a big hassle for no reason, as there is nothing different I require of my testing experience like extra time or something, just need to be able to take one pill. Sorry if this comes across as ignorant, just genuinely curious.

I took the CBX, but, no.

You're not getting any special accommodation, you're taking your prescribed medication for a medical condition.

You're taking it before the exam right?

Anyways, I think people get super paranoid before the bar so it's not a weird question.
