It is not easy to get 100% score in a public examination. If there are many 100% scores in a test center within a short period. SUN/Prometric should consider to terminate the contract with this center.

Scott, we've been trying to clean up the thread you're complaining about. Did you notice that a whole bunch of posts had already been removed from that thead, which is now closed? We made repeated requests to people to be nice, but apparently that's too difficult for some. So we eventually closed the thread and removed a number of insulting & argumentative posts, as well as additional posts that referred to the previous argument. While attempting to leave the original topic intact since it's actually something Evelyn needed to be able to see. Is it necessary to continue complaining and arguing about it?

I should probably just close this thread too, but I will briefly try leaving it open in case anyone has something important to say relevant to the current thread, rather than the old argument. Like Peter's post above, which seems like a good suggestion.

Madam ,
please consider this, thomson prometric centers for GRE,TOFEL are practicing very strict rules regarding conducting exams and are very few in india.so allow exams at this centers only.

Hi Evelyn,
As was suggested by one of the guys who brought up the issue that these centers disable the video feed( if there is one). i would like to suggest that webcam recording be an absolute must before granting these certifications.

Hi Evelyn,
I would also recommend to authorize only prometric centres to conduct these certifications. They maintain standards.

Also, it would be a better idea to enforce a photo of the person during the submission of the application. This would minimize the practice of writing tests of one person by other person.

Thanks,
Jitender.

I just want to add that practice might be common in other countries. it was good that this was broght into notice at least. Sun should do something really impressive so that this malpractice should end in all countries.

Thanks

We probably will not be told anything more here. The purpose of Evelyn's post is to give an opportunity for those persons with real factual evidence to personally and privately contact a person in Sun that has a real chance of pursuing the matter.

hi all,
i want to remind to my friends from india that there are a good number of news channels that really unleash such bad practices. they someway capture such things through a hidden camera, and put it in front of the public.if the person who agrees to do such offence i,e taking money and letting others write the exam for someone they for sure he will be caught and the test center will be closed.so who ever has seen such practices better inform about it to the news reporters and then reality will be known.
just think of it.also if the concerned prometric center person is a member of java ranch and if he comes to know abt what i said,then he will stop doing such things . if he is not a member then he will be caught.
hope it really works.
