What if a test center where one is registered is shutdown?

Has this happened to any of you? The university where I registered to take my gmat from has been closed down over a students' / academic staff strike! What options exist?

Hi 1Narrative,

The GMAT is normally administered through a third-party Testing Facility (such as Pearson), so it's unclear what you mean when you say you scheduled your GMAT at a University. Can you go into a bit more detail about your situation? If you do have an Official GMAT appointment (that you made through www.mba.com), then you should contact that website's Customer Service Department.

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich

Hi Rich!


The third party test center is located within a university.

Hopefully, the closure won't affect the test center operations....(my second nearest test center is three countries away!)


Thanks for the advice. I'll get in touch with customer service.
