    Has this happened to anyone recently? I was in the middle of the 5th of 6 REG SIMs and the software crashed! The Prometric proctor reset my computer but could not reload the test. We then tried to call the Prometric IT dept but due to a huge, nationwide issue with the GRE exam, they had us on hold for 1.5 hours! I unfortunately couldn’t wait there any longer as I had to relieve my babysitter, but now I had to call Prometric Candidate Care and then email the NASBA Candidate Care and it says they will get back to me in 5 business days! I can’t wait that long – due to the test changes at 4/1, I am trying to squeeze in my last part on March 9! Just wondering if anyone else has gone through this??

    Yes it happened when i was taking FAR exam. It crashed before 30 min of my exam time but fortunately it came up and i was is no rush. Staff member gave me a ticket or some sort of number and tell me that if AICPA inquiry regarding the time gap, just give them this number.
    Actually i was glad that it crashed as it allowed me to take a break, rethink my sim's answers. I don't think it has any need for worry.

    you'll probably have to take it again, on their dime…..what a bummer. The disadvantages of dependence upon electronics. It's like losing the signal on the cell phone for an important call or job interview follow up.

    It happened same with me today. My computer crashed 5 times and I had to go out and asked the assistant to reboot it. I ran out of time and did not have enough time to finish my SIMs.
    However, they did not give me a ticket. Can I still claim to Nasba without a ticket?
