Make sure you’re ready for the exam by preparing thoroughly and looking through this short checklist of things you’ll need on test day.
Getting to the Center and Taking the Test
Make sure you have:
- A printed copy of the admissions letter you received after registering for the exam. If you misplace the email containing the admissions letter, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for help prior to attempting to take the exam.
- A valid photo identification that includes your signature (e.g., driver’s license, passport, government-issued ID)
- The test center location and phone number (just in case!)
- A map to the test center, if needed
- Just for fun, why not double-check your admissions letter to verify the date and time of the exam?
- Remember that before beginning the test you’ll need to place all personal items – handbag or wallet, coat, and any electronic devices, including phone, tablet, calculator, camera, etc. — in a secure locker. The recommendation is, “If you don’t need it, don’t take it!”
