A: The CA Subject Exam for Teachers is what you're referring to, for those who may not know the abbreviation CSET. If you're given 1 year to complete the CSET from the time you register for the exam, and after registering you request an ADA accommodation, how does that request for the accommodation take away any time for you to study for the CSET? I don't see anything problematic here. More details are necessary to provide a professional analysis of your issue. The best first step is an Initial Consultation with an Attorney such as myself.
