I bought a voucher in China, but I am going to study in Australia, when I finish the assignment and uploaded, if I passed, then can I take the essay exam in Australia? I'm in Melbourne, where is the nearest place? I cannot go back China until 2006...

Hi HaoZhe,
when I finish the assignment and uploaded, if I passed, then can I take the essay exam ...

You must take the essay exam before Sun will even consider marking your assignment. Prometric will hold onto your assignment until you have done the exam, then they will send both the assignment and the exam to an examiner for marking.
The exam is designed to demonstrate that you wrote the assignment. Anyone could write the assignment and submit it - there is no proof that you did it. So Sun/Prometric require you to go to an examination location where you have to prove that you are really you (two forms of identification - one of which has your photo on it). In the exam they will ask questions that only the person who coded the submission can answer. Since they have identified you, they can then match your answers with what is really in the submission, and can therefore be certain that you did write your assignment.
But obviously they can only do that if they have the assignment and exam answers together.
I bought a voucher in China [...] can I take the essay exam in Australia?

Contact Prometric in Australia (from within Australia call 1-800-808-657) and ask them.
Alternatively contact Sun education in Australia (from within Australia call 1800-628-193) and ask them.
I'm in Melbourne, where is the nearest place?

Where in Melbourne? It's a big place.
You could try going to the Prometric web site (http://www.2test.com/tcl/index.jsp) and look for a location.
To give you some examples of places in / around Melbourne:
DRAKE INTERNATIONAL (Collins St, Melbourne)
New Horizons Computer Learning Centre (Queen St, Melbourne)
EXCOM EDUCATION (Montague St, Sth Melbourne)
Monash University (Dandenong Rd, Caulfield East)
Box Hill Instute (Whitehorse Rd, Box Hill)
Steps Consulting (Blantyre Ave, Chelsea)
Bendigo Regional Tafe (McCrae St, Bendigo)
There are others as well. I have not been to any of them, so I dont have any recommendations.
Regards, Andrew
