SELECT SITE CLOSURES DUE TO CIVIL UNREST
As a result of protest-related activities in communities across the US, it is necessary for Prometric to suspend or restrict operations at select test centers out of concern for the safety and well-being of test takers and staff. A listing of impacted sites is available on the Prometric Site Openings page. Information will be updated daily and Prometric will seek to notify impacted candidates with as much advance notice as possible, though in many cases the evolving situation may require closure at short notice.
If you are scheduled to take your examination and want to confirm your examination will take place, please contact Prometric or NBOME.
COM AND CANDIDATE SUPPORT
NBOME is continuing to communicate regularly with all COMs through our COM Liaison Team. This group is delivering detailed, customized COMLEX-USA appointment scheduling reports each week and working with contacts at each COM to help troubleshoot candidate scheduling issues. If you have questions about COMLEX-USA scheduling for your COM, please contact your liaison or Laura Barrett at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Of the more than 6,000 COMLEX-USA candidates whose Prometric appointments were displaced due to COVID-19, 92% of all Level 1 and Level 2-CE appointments have been rescheduled. 95% of Level 1 and Level 2-CE appointments are rescheduled into May-Aug dates (Level 1) and Jun-Aug (Level 2-CE). 70% of Level 3 candidates with displaced appointments have been rescheduled, with 74% rescheduled into May-Sep dates.
Prometric continues to expand testing in many areas as local authorities adjust requirements for social distancing. As more and more regions are able to add test dates and seats, the NBOME continues to work with Prometric to secure seats for COMLEX-USA test takers. In May alone, over 800 candidates tested. Over 300 test sites are now open, with test sites at full capacity in 9 states. In June, over 6,300 candidates are scheduled to take Level 1, Level 2-CE and Level 3 examinations at Prometric test centers.
Please continue to monitor the Prometric site to find dates and times that may be preferable to your current testing appointment. As a reminder, NBOME’s rescheduling fees through the end of 2020 have been waived.
As always, candidates can contact NBOME Client services by phone at 866.479.6828 7AM-7PM (ET) Monday through Friday or via email ClientServices@nbome.org.
