Unhappy Appointment cancelled by the Prometric! HELP!

I had my USMLE xam scheduled for today.I went to the prometric centre and there they informed me that they are having some technical problem with some aodio video thing and that i wont be able to give the xam .I told them to give me some confirmation of this event,but i was told that the head office will contact me for rescheduling ..I called the head office and they said that they have no such confirmation from the test centre.
I am really tensed and shocked and dont noe wat to do.

may god be with u!!
i haven't had the same thing, and i hope nothing like this unexpected comes up.... i have no idea what i would do,,,, i would most likely turn the prometric center into a CALL OF DUTY MW3 Warfield - death match mode, too.

Definitely call ECFMG and try again to get some confirmation from the prometric centre saying that the problem was on their side. Simply DEMAND it!
btw, which country is this prometric centre in?

A word of hope from me.

My friend had the similar problem during his step 1 exam.

He was also tensed out like same. What will happen is your exam will be re-scheduled and you will likely give it after 10-14 days.

Don't worry. They will inform you. But its also a safe bet to call ECFMG and get confirmation.

Oh yes, one thing will suck. You will continue to ponder over book for 2 weeks without proper attention, cause I assumed you were focused for giving it today. Other than that, I hope to God you should be fine.
