    Try phoning them, if you're trying to book for friday then it may be the easiest way. 8)

    Zim,

    Are Prometric dominant in your area? Pearson are the *main player* for us.

    Update: No confirmation yet from my testing centre - they will get back to me later.... or tommorrow as they dont work on Wednesday afternoons... My card still hasnt been charged and for my last 3 exams I have booked i been charged instantly (could i be getting a free exam from prometric??) and I have no confirmation email from them either which i again i get instantly. Yet I have the exam scheduled for Friday and it all looks normal on the prometric site. :blink :rolleyes:

    Keep us posted on if you get it.

    Fly over to the UK - okay, sure, it's expensive... but we have a great variety of alcohol here to celebrate when you pass!

    On a serious note... how far away from you is the one and only Pearson testing centre? The Prometric centre is closer to me in the UK; the pure reason I went with Pearson was ease of use on their site.

    chase it up, otherwise you might be going there and have a wasted trip...

    Edit;

    Phone the centre itself (where you are taking it)
