I have been offered an interview.

Is asking for interview questions, and additional time for the interview task classed as a reasonable adjustment?
Hope this helps!

    Provided you’re covered by EA 10 then in some circumstances yes.

    Bear in mind though, sometimes there might be set questions and interviewers will ask follow up or additional questions dependant on your answer. Those can’t really be given to you in advance, as the interviewer won’t know if they will ask extra questions until they hear your responses. So just to bear in mind questions could potentially be asked that you were not fore warned about.

    Hi and welcome to the community 

    Yes it would be classed as a reasonable adjustments but like any they can be requested but don't have to be implemented 

    There should be no issues with additional time but it depends on the type of interview questions if possible 

    Some use situational type questions so they can see how you would handle certain situations and the object of this kind of question is that you give your instinct reaction without being able to research 

    Some may allow you to have look over questions in room prior to interview 

    It is all down to the recruiter but nothing wrong with request 
    I have professional experience in HR within public,  private, and charity sectors.  If I can help I will
