That would depend on whether you actually have dyslexia or not.

The testing isn't pass or fail, it's a specific set of parameters that you either are within or have some sort of deficit

Um. I'll reserve my opinion for myself on this one. For pragmatic reasons, it's better to pass. But it's not necessarily easy to fake it. The people who author these tests are quite competent and highly qualified, and know a few tricks on how to recognize fakers. You'd be surprised just how insightful someone can be who has studied and worked with dyslexic people for decades.

That said, people still get away with it.

it isn't a test you can pass or fail, it is a diagnostic assessment to identify whether you have dyslexia or not.
it would be better to not have dyslexia

but if it turns out you do then identifying it should give you access to the help you might need to ensure you succeed despite it.
