What is standby testing?

Standby testing allows you to register your intent to test even after the late registration deadline. This is also true if you need to make a late change to your registration—to change your test date or test center.  Standby requests must be submitted and paid for online during a limited Standby Request Period before the test date. Paper registration folders are not accepted at the test center.

Standby testing is not available in all countries, and there is no guarantee you will be admitted to test. Standbys are admitted on a first-come, first-admitted basis and only if there are seats, materials, and staff available after all registered students for that test center and test date have been seated for their test option.
