Scheduling the Test Site

Once an application has been approved, ABMGG will email eligible candidates a letter granting them Active Candidate Status. Approximately three (3) months prior to the examination date, ABMGG will send a second email to eligible candidates on how to schedule the examinations. Please ensure that the name on your scheduling email exactly matches the name on your required ID; if there is a discrepancy, notify the ABMGG office at

Examinations will need to be scheduled at an available time slot on the dates specified for each examination. While most examinees will be able to take their exams as scheduled, each center is different and there may be unanticipated circumstances which delay the start time for an exam on the scheduled date. Examinees are encouraged to build some flexibility into their personal schedules to account for this possibility. No special consideration will be given to examinees who experience delayed start times which do not compromise the total allotted time available to complete an exam.

Should difficulties at a test site or other emergencies prohibit an examinee from taking an examination on their scheduled date, the examinee must contact the ABMGG Administrative Office within 24 hours to report the problem.

Examination irregularities or other circumstances warranting special consideration will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis at the sole discretion of the ABMGG.
