Be sure to inform your test center as soon as possible (at least 6 weeks in advance) if you have a disability or other condition that requires special arrangements for you on test day.
Your test scores remain valid for 2 years following your test date.

Remember to follow the instructions in the acknowledgement email and send your payment directly to the test center within 5 days of your online registration, or you may lose your seat for the test.
