    Good morning to everyone on this wonderful Snowy day:)

    I have currently my 290 exam eventually book for wednesday this week and was looking forward to getting it out of the way before tacking the 291.

    Ive already had to rescheuled the exam twice to work commitnments and with the prospect that i wont be able to make the exam due to the weather - took over 2 hours to do a 45 min journey to work this morning.......Im probably gonna have to reschedule again, and rather do this today, than take the chance and not be able to attend........

    So was just wondering if there is a limit of reschedules? Ive had a quick scan and coulkdnt find the info on the prometric site

    cheers if anyone knows

    No limits, the only thing you can't do is re-schedule a test on the same day that you were meant to sit it.

    So long as you have at least 24hrs notice then theres no limit to the amount of times you postpone

    I find it can depend on the test centre.
    Some toe the company line and give you all the '24hrs' thing - others are quite relaxed about it.

    I am not certain, but I seem to recall a one year limit... meaning, you have to take the exam within one year of paying for it.

    As far as the number of reschedules, I'm pretty sure the others are correct - as long as you give them the standard 24-hour notice, you should be fine. That said, don't reschedule and forget... I've heard that happen far too many times. I'd hate for you to be a casualty!
