The Bayesian Monte Carlo technics requires individual evaluations of random cross section files based on a Total Monte Carlo propagation. This article discusses the use of a Correlated Sampling acceleration applied to TMC calculations for experiments where a brute force technics is too expensive. An e_cient estimation of the reaction rate uncertainties in small dosimeters is obtained, together with the inter-dosimeter correlation associated to the cross section uncertainties.
