Dear Friends,

I bought a sun voucher on Prometric Test Center, the date printed on the voucher was 04/07/2009. I thought it is July 04,2009. so i planned to attend the exam on june 08, 2009. so based on these plan, i prepared the exam and went to prometric test center to attend the exam on june 08, 2009. but the exam organizer/Conductor said that voucher is already expired and its validity is upto april 07, 2009. i was totally shocked and absurd. we , in our country usually follow the dd/MM/yyyy format in all Application forms whether it is private or public organisation, banks , educational institution etc. so i had the mind set of dd/MM/yyyy format only. i did not have any idea of mm/dd/yyyy format in the voucher.

The Prometric exam center did not informed about this format when i paid the fees. even there is no indication about this format in the sun voucher.

So, as of now it cannot able to attend the test. I want to know, whether is there any chance for me to claim for this issue to Sun. can i get the oppurtunity to attend the test using the same voucher, whether can they extend the validity period.

Kindly advise me regarding this issue. Eagerly waiting for your reply


with regards,

Srinivasan

why didn't the Format of Date 'mm/dd/yyyy' is printed in the voucher below the date. so that every body purcharsing the voucher can be clarified. or they should have printed the month in words.
