ASL Exam Centre cancellations on Friday 7th Aug

On Friday the 7th candidates sitting an exam with ASL in Highett in Melbourne for the 1230pm session would have gotten a phone call approximately 50minutes prior to their exam session starting that their exams had been cancelled due to a nation wide computer system problem, and that CASA had elected to cancel those exam sessions, offering everybody a re-booking on Tuesday the 11th. (They made it sound like all ASL exam centres nation wide had been affected).

When the person on the phone called to cancel due to this "computer outage" you could clearly hear in the background another person/s frantically calling candidates to cancel on them in time.

To anybody who had an exam at this time and was affected by this: I just want you to know that there was no computer crash/system error. ASL had simply double booked the time slot, and there was another 1230pm session run on that Friday which was full and went ahead without any glitches.

Good one

Yeah that seems like a very easy way to have found out.
