Exam Scheduling and Rescheduling

For your planning purposes, please note that our ISTQB testing centers will soon make the earliest exam dates 3 weeks in the future. This is designed to provide some staffing flexibility as they work through the COVID-19 / coronavirus situation.

The good news is that you have lots of flexibility thanks to our unique ISTQB voucher system from our official ISTQB exam provider, AT*SQA:
  • You have up to 365 days to schedule your initial exam date when you purchase an exam voucher.
  • Once you have scheduled your exam, you may reschedule it with no additional fee so long as you do so at least 72 hours before the exam. 
  • You may reschedule your exam multiple times. There is no additional fee so long as you do so each time at least 72 hours before the exam. 
  • If you are within 72 hours of your exam, the $75 change fee can only be waived by Kryterion/Webassessor because they have to pay for the employees that staff the testing centers. This requires a doctor's note stating that you could not sit for the exam. In that case, contact Kryterion via the Kryterion Test Taker Support Area. Do not contact AT*SQA or ASTQB in this case, as the waiver must be given by Kryterion.
  • Kryterion will also post notices in their Kryterion Test Taker Support Area if an area has had a widespread test center closure that requires a no-cost reschedule. 
Prefer a group exam in your location? If you have several individuals who can take their exams at the same time in the same location, you may be eligible for an on-site exam. The exams can be any combination of foundation, specialty, advanced or expert certifications. Contact the AT*SQA Support Team for the criteria and details.
