    A student calls in, wanting to request their final to go two-way express mail. While looking up their information, you see that they have already requested their final exam.

    Correct Answer
    C. Tell the student that once we receive the exam back in our offices we can send out another test.

    We no longer post "I" grades in Orion. Instead, the testing department can cancel the exam but they can't do that until we have received the original exam in our offices.

      None of the above. Students can only take their final exams once. It’s their lessons that they can resubmit one time each.

    Make sure to always double-check the proctor listed in R6, even if the exam just went there recently. Certifications are updated daily, so you never know.
