Giving exam on last day mentioned on voucher

Hello!

The expiry date on my SCJP 1.6 voucher is 24th Jan 2009, I have scheduled my exam at a Prometric test centre on 24th Jan 2009 at 8pm.
Is there a problem in giving the exam on the last day mentioned on the exam voucher, I consulted some of my friends and they say that that taking the exam on the last day mentioned on the voucher is risky and they have told me to avoid doing it.

Please let me know your views, I am from India.

Regards,
Olly

If you've booked the slot and submitted the voucher, you'll come to know if there is a problem.You are well within the last date. Don't think abt the problem. Keep focus on the exam.

I have booked the slot on the last day, but the prometric centre didn't take my voucher. They just told me to be there at 8pm on 24th Jan 2009 with Identity proof and my sun java exam voucher. So I am not sure about the validity on that day yet?

Thanks,
Olly

If they themselves have given you the date and time then no need to worry. But if you wish, give them a call and confirm your doubt. All the best for the exam!

In fact I asked them for the date as I needed more time. They told me that last day vouchers give a problem sometimes.

Out here in namma bengaluru, NIIT Prometric takes the voucher and gives you a form to fill up which also has the acknowledgement receipt. They give the acknowledgement receipt on submission of the voucher and date is fixed. I don't know abt your place, mate. but did they note down the voucher No after scratching the silver NIIT strip. Any way, call up that centre and confirm. and yeah keep the focus like i said before and All the very best....

No they did not take my voucher nor did they scratch the silver foil off the vocher. They just made me fill a form and gave me a date and time. I still have the voucher with me.
Regarding giving the exam a day earlier... all the slots are full here.

Are all the possible prometric centres full? Strange. Well in that case what can you do? Go and see what happens. Just prepare well. DOn't focus on what happens.

Worst case you can buy a new coupon .
