If your government identification doesn’t match your Prometric account name or is unacceptable, you will not be admitted into the exam and be charged a $100 USD rescheduling fee. Please contact the Certification Team right away if this happens.

Changing your name

If you change your name on your required identification after receiving your exam registration confirmation email, it is your responsibility to notify IIBA as soon as possible.


Failure to notify IIBA in time will result in the test center not accepting your identification and therefore, you will not be able to take the exam on your scheduled date and must pay $100.00 USD + applicable taxes to reschedule your exam.
