    Lay it on thick with Vue and see what they offer for your inconvenience.

    Good luck!

    Funny enough the Prometric site in Liverpool, Software Generation, isn't even an option any more when booking an exam and two others just give me an error message. I have to drive to Wigan tomorrow to sit 70-291. Whats the world coming too ha ha

    Blimey. That's a bit of a kick in the teeth. I assume they are just going to re-issue your exam voucher so you can take it elsewhere.

    Really sorry to hear about that, exams aren't really the sort of thing you can just go "oh well, I can take it another day", might have been nice of them to warn you.

    Wow you guys are lenient!! I gotta admit I'd go nuts over this. The way I see it you're basically buying a service from a company so for you not to be notified of a rather drastic change is really beyond belief!! :x

    Firstly, that's bad luck for you. As i think somebody else said on here, an exam isnt really something you want to be saying "oh well, i will come back another day", quite apart from the fact that you have been greatly inconvenienced!

    Secondly, Prometric's handling of this situation doesnt seem great.

    Worryingly, this seems to be more widespread than it at first seemed. Hopefully this will get resolved quickly and properly.

    I have my 70-270 on 5th June - lets see if i can get in the Test Centre!

    btw - those of you that are struggling to find test centres in the north west - there are a couple in Manchester that may be able to help if thats any good? let me know and i can give you the details.

    I gather this post is about the pearsonVUE testing centre being closed?

    Well there is a prometric centre in Solihull.
