                              “Required Notifications of Adverse Testing Conditions” regarding appropriate
                              notification.


                              If the test center staff does not verify to the NBOME’s satisfaction that the
                              condition complained of existed, or that it existed but did not or would not have
                              substantially and adversely affected the candidate’s performance on the
                              examination, the examination will be scored.

                         or


                         Withdraw from examination for adverse Testing Conditions. If after notifying the test
                         center professional staff the candidate chooses to withdraw from the examination due to
                         an Adverse Testing Condition before its completion, the following shall apply:


                              If the test center staff verifies to the NBOME that the condition complained of is an
                              Adverse Testing Condition that did exist, and the NBOME determines that it would
                              have substantially and adversely affected the candidate’s performance of the
                              examination, the candidate may reschedule the examination for the next available
                              date and will not be assessed any additional fee. The examination to the extent
                              completed will be voided and not reported.


                              If the test center staff does not verify to NBOME’s satisfaction that the condition
                              complained of existed, or that it existed but the NBOME determines that it would
                              not have substantially and adversely affected the candidate’s performance on the
                              examination, NBOME may in its sole discretion elect to score the examination or to
                              not score the examination and permit the candidate to retake the examination. For
                              the COMLEX-USA Level 2-PE, voluntary withdrawal from the examination may
                              result in a failing score report as detailed in “Required Notifications of Adverse
                              Testing Conditions.” In such a case for any COMLEX-USA examination, the
                              candidate may not schedule to take the examination within 60 days of the date of
                              the examination, must pay a full examination fee, and may not elect to withdraw
                              from any future COMLEX-USA examination.


                              If the candidate believes he or she has been impacted by an Adverse Testing
                              Condition and withdraws from the examination before its completion, the
                              candidate must provide to the NBOME, within 10 calendar days following the date
                              of his or her withdrawal, credible and verifiable written evidence of the Adverse
                              Testing Condition. In addition, the candidate must immediately report such
                              circumstance to the test center staff at the time of the examination. Simply making
                              a comment in the post-examination survey regarding any possible Adverse Testing
                                                                                                              22
