This paper analyzes the accessibility policy of the National Exam of Upper Secondary Education (Enem), concerning the accommodations provided for participants with disabilities and many different elements and stages related to its implementation, such as the public notice, the website, the registration system, adapted tests, tests locations, the training and the work of application teams, the application of the test and the correction of essays. It were considered the 2011 and 2012 editions data, which analysis allows to identify the quantitative evolution of the participation of people with disabilities in the exam, but mainly recognize process gaps and inconsistencies, leading us to conclude that the policy accessibility to Enem cannot be restricted to some aspects regarding accommodations, but must involve the whole process.
