Indian Prometric Centers Cancelled Exam Dates - January 2013
by rohit39 01-11-2013, 08:07 PM

Hey guys, i'm in quite a pickle here.

IMG from Bangalore, India here. I had booked a step 1 date in the bangalore prometric centre for jan 17th, and i had even confirmed the appointment on jan 10th, but this morning i got an email from prometric informing me that my "testing appointment scheduled with Prometric had to be cancelled due to the centers are closed for administrative review."

Since today being Saturday here, the call centres to help me out with what to do next are not open till monday. And i really want a date as early as possible to get step 1 done with because i've been doing really well lately. What do i do? Do i have to wait till monday to get a chance to contact the prometric people? Or do i just reschedule myself to the closest available date?

I spoke to prometric people over the e-chat service, they told me that the department was contacting candidates one by one and that i should expect a call today or tomorrow. If not, call prometric Gurgaon on monday to re-schedule.

Have you noticed the prometric scheduling site has only hyderabad and delhi listed as centres now? Bangalore, Chennai and Mumbai are not even on the list. Wonder what happened

Help!

Guys, I too just received a text from Prometric that my exam has been cancelled due to some technical incompetence on their part.
What is the next action to be taken? I need to calm myself first! :P
Please keep updating this thread with latest information. Tons of thanks in advance! And all the best for everything ahead!

My confirmation page on prometric shows the appointment being cancelled..but rescheduling/booking a new appointment has been disabled for me online..

Ok people, i spoke to the webchat people at Prometric at length today, because i wanted to reschedule my exam and make sure i finished it before jan 31st (end of my eligibility period), initially they recommended i wait for the rescheduling team to call me, or wait till monday to call them.

I then asked them if i could reschedule the date myself online after paying the rescheduling cost ($104 because my scheduled date was on 17th jan), he said yes i could do that although they recommend waiting to talk to the rescheduling team on monday, because they might offer dates not available on the site by over riding the system and stuff.

I thought about it and decided that i better reschedule on my own (jan 23rd in delhi was available), and did that just now at a cost of $104. I didnt want to wait till monday and risk not getting a date in jan.

Hope i did the right thing and things go fine.

yes..my confirmation page shows it as being cancelled..i think since ur exam is in feb they wud hav resolved the issue by then and hence its not cancelled..and probably that is the reason u havent gotten an email as well

hello

thats good for you, but for people like me who do not have aconfirmation email as of now and also my prometric page still says that my exam is con firmed in 31 jan 2013, that is also my last day of scheduling period ,

but i guess they will definetly give the dates to people who need it more like us, as the other people who have an extended period like feb mar or apr can still have dates later,

i dont know , but i think i should wait.

so we wait till tomorrow...i think this whole mess happens often in prometric...and they resolve it quickly...my friend who wrote GRE few years back had the sme problem and it was resolved..he didnt change the dates or anything..so i would wait till talking to prometric delhi to decide otherwise...most probably the exams coming up soon will need to be rescheduled but for others i think it will be allright...

@rohit- did the chat people mention anythin like, now that u have scheduled 23rd, and if the prometric people actually override the system and do something, are u with jan 23rd itself or can u change?? wud they consider giving alternative if we reschedule it online? i tried that chat thing 5 times and it was on hold and then session ended.

I spoke to 2 different people on the web chat thing on two differeny occasions, both told me i can reschedule it by paying the fee, but they RECOMMEND i wait till they call or i can call them on monday because dates might be available due to the over riding of the system and stuff.


I decided to reschedule at the cost anyway because i wanted a date before jan 31st, irrespective of the location.

That wasn't the case for me Kapil. When i entered my confirmation number and first 4 letters of last name, and i checked out my appointment, it showed me the appointment for jan 17th in bangalore, i chose reschedule, chose the delhi venue and date, and paid the amount, booked it, and even got the confirmatory email in 5 mins.

I really hope i made the right move

Yes you are right in that sense, and thats why i decided to reschedule it myself irrespective of cost! But there's a slightly bad feeling inside me that these Delhi dates might get cancelled at anytime!

Dipika, for you, i'd say try talking to the webchat guys once. You'll have to wait quite a while to get a chance to chat with them, but they clarified a lot of my questions.

im wondering if they will release new test dates and centres on the website and leave it open for people to book, or would they call each and everyone and schedule a date themselves or randomly allot dates to us..

allahabad centre has many dates in jan and feb..wonder how come nobody has picked up those dates..

About the rescheduling issue, they've constantly said that just re-schedulings free of cost (because of a fault at prometric's side) should be done only by the phone, either they call you or you call them.

I guess people who still have a valid appointment are not taking centres that are available cuz the issue cud get sorted out and dates neednt be changed in a hurry.. As for those who have cancelled appointments we cannot reschedule and take the allahbad dates since we dont have an option to reschedule online.. i did hear that new dates maybe added to accomodate those who have cancelled appointments..dont know how true it is!

Since today being Saturday here, the call centres to help me out with what to do next are not open till monday. And i really want a date as early as possible to get step 1 done with because i've been doing really well lately. What do i do? Do i have to wait till monday to get a chance to contact the prometric people? Or do i just reschedule myself to the closest available date?

I got a call from +60327817700. It rang a few times, but before i could pick up, the call got cut. Now i'm worried thinking it was prometric guys calling me.

Any idea?

Oh, he called you to tell you to call Gurgaon on monday? Thats pretty pointless. Where was that call from? And anything said in that call?

hello

well dipika, were you taking exam in mumbai...??

i had in mumbai and the other option is only hyderabad which is just not there, the prometric can schedule exam for max 6 candidate on one day that includes even the gre , gmat and the international papers like cfa and all, how will it be possible for them to reschedule all people,

i am sure they will bring on new dates as otherwise it would be a big crisis situation,,,,

Just managed to get through. If you're getting an engaged tone initially, don't worry, just keep trying again and again, you'll get through sometime, and after a long hold you will be put to some customer executive.

She told me the same, wait for a few days for re-scheduling. But she also told me the appointment i re-scheduled yday to gurgaon, incurring the cost, is confirmed, and that i am eligible for a refund of the amount i paid ($104).

So whoever is able to re-schedule it on the site to an available date, i would suggest do it now. Even if you have to bear the cost, because the customer executive clearly told me that they would give me the refund of the amount, but the refund procedures she would tell me once the problem has been completely sorted out.

they said they are working hard on resolving the mumbai, bangalore, chennai centres, and i should keep checking if mumbai is an option.
but they didnt specify any date as to when.

so my previous date was on 15th feb mumbai, but seeing all this happening, i scheduled it for 20th feb allahabad on sat,

they rescheduled for delhi feb 20th.
i think something is better than nothing, so if you do manage to get a date in delhi or allahabad take it!

Same here. Try going to reschedule your appointment because it shows me 'confirmed appointment' but when i go to reschedule, it says 'invalid id'!
