You can also send an email to IBM and clarify incase if i am wrong. I just thought i would inform the group.
For everyone planning to take after 3/31, I strongly suggest to schedule the exam for an approximate date in April, May or June. If you can get a confirmation email then you are fine. You can always reschedule it later to a more suitable date.
We have seen extended vouchers running into difficulties in the last minute. People have run from pillar to post (vendor to Promteric and back) to get the voucher issue sorted out.
Best wishes and Good Luck to everyone.
Its better to call Prometric and fix a date for taking exam before March'31st. Scheduling date could be anywhere from now to June'30th.
Error: The testing date is out of the allowed range.
How can I reschedule the exam?
Some people told they had done that.
If you have attained a voucher through the following program: http://www-1.ibm.com/certify/news/20031118a.shtml, and have not already scheduled a test appointment using that voucher that you attained, then yes, the voucher does expire on June 30, 2004.
If you have already scheduled your testing appt using the voucher, then you cannot change your testing appt date to after March 31, 2004.
Sorry, but I cannot reissue you new vouchers. It is not true that IBM reiussed new vouchers to solve this problem. We had some vouchers left over from the voucher program so we decided to use those for a different program. But since we could not change the expiration date for just some of these vouchers, we had to change the expiration date for all of the vouchers because they were from the same lot
Could anyone help me what should I do to postpone the exam.
It is good that I read this thread since I had just one more exam to give IBM 141 and I didnt wanna give it, rather I would have given the exam but I wouldnt have prepared for the exam, just give the exam and hope that I would pass.
