Final Exam Re-take
« on: August 08, 2011, 07:21:52 PM »
Hello,
     On August 1st, I took the Basic Controller Exam test and buzzed through it and got a 76%. I've studied and waited the required 7 days and tried to take the exam today. It was not automatically re-assigned so I went to the "become an ATC" link and tried to get it and I got the error "You currently have a hold for the basic controller exam". Have they changed the required number of days to wait before re-taking the Basic Controller Exam?

Thank you in advance.

Are you sure you waited 7 days? I believe the system is time based so the 7 days are not over until the same time that you took the original test passes. I would simply wait until tomorrow and take it then. Good luck!

Thank you for the reply Adam! Yeah, I waited 7 days and took the test at 6:13 PM Mountain Time, its now 6:37 PM Mountain Time. I'll wait until tomorrow and see if I can take it. Thank you!

The exam auto-reassign is an automated script that runs every morning, please check again today (8/9/2011) as the script will run in an hour or two.
