Warning! URGENT !! ECFMG Scheduling Permit Site Crash?????

Hello Guys!

I am supposed to take my test on 18th!.. just began to recieve about 10-15 emails from ECFMG to download a revised permit- without which i wont be able to take exam.

On trying to download it, i got my password wrong a few times (i thought) because it kept showing "session ended" and giving reasons as

For security purposes, you have been logged out for one of the following reasons:
you chose to log out
your session has expired
you have not been authenticated
you entered the incorrect password

I immediately applied for a new password which i recieved in half an hour.

NOW when i am trying to log in with new password the SAME SCREEN!

I dont exactly understand.. is this problem happening elsewhere?

MOST importantly : IS THE CIN CHANGED FOR THE NEW PERMIT ?
I am thinking of taking the exam on the older permit because all it will mention new is the new fees etc.

Can anyone who has the new permit confirm that the CIN remains the same ?

it will be such a big help.. im a bad test taker and this worrying is not helping at all

I had the same problem. Try to log in from a different computer for the day. It must be that your IP address has been blacklisted after the failed attempts but tomorrow it will be ok I think. Go to a friend's PC or an internet cafe(if there is one there). Hope this helps, don't panic!

And yes, I am able to log in from my computer ;-)

Also, I don't think that the CIN changes. It is unique for this session

Default Permit Printing problem

I have the same problem. I tried another IP, but didn't help. I just want to know when I can log on and print the permit? My exam is in two days!
Any idea?

Arrow What is Permit?

Hi all, this might be a stupid question but can you please tell me what is this permit you want to print from ecfmg website?...i have my exam coming up and i want to make sure i print it...so, can you please tell me how and where i can find it. Thanks.

Only thing that I have printed so far is my appointment confirmation from prometric website...that is not the permit, right?

you have absolutely to take the scheduling permit with you
when you log in IWA there is a link "" print or reprint scheduling permit"" take it with you to the prometric center
